In the world of superior Northern Soul 45 double-siders this disc reigns supreme. One of the finest "two for the price of one" NS recordings ever committed to vinyl.

You could blindfold a DJ with records of this calibre,ad he could drop the arm on either side, and ignite the same response. Both sides have the power to lift any DJ's set with these rich productions from Plato Theophilos and Ron Bollon, enhanced by vocal-group harmony excellence, arranged by Baltimore "face" Dave Barker who guided several sessions for his hometown Bay Sound label. Both sides written by the mysterious "PlatoTheophilos" with the spine-tingling arrangements by Nick Barker unleashing a perfect blending of Baltimore & Philadelphia influenced Northern Soul.

Don't take our word for it, click the double soundfile to trigger two dancefloor classics of equal magnificence.

Then think about, how and where you could acquire two wondrous Northern Soul dancers of this quality for the price of one...

May we suggest ...nowhere we know of..
