Seldom seen menacing New Jersey Northern Soul no matter which side you drop the arm on. Persuasive vocal lead voice, boosted by 4 feverish vocal responses creating a seismic wave of harmony riding what can only be described as an "unforgiving backing track".

The frantic support provided by a just down the road, Philly-based team of 7, who went on to become "Instant Funk" on TSOP and Sal Soul. At the time they were under the guidance Lou Henderson and the T.N.J.s. The "Music Machine" delivery big! Pushing this energetic quintet to the limits of vocal-group endurance with not one but two out and out stompers.

Check these real-deal Northern Soul intruders, both recorded at -2 rpm, the speed the DJ's and dancers prefer. You'll collide with two whooping Northern Soul vocal group delights, darting breakneck interchanging vocals ride a bass-guitar pulses, rattling Gatlin-gun percussion, incessant banging piano rhythms, propel the songs from one peak to the next.

This is what authentic classic style Northern Soul is made of, on "I've Had It So Good" The Time Machine add a burping saxophone into the fray...

Breathtaking twice over!!!
