From 50's Teen-idol to one of New York's most respected singer, writer, producers of the sixties. Presented here with his most wanted creation in collaboration with Bobby Hart a booming Northern Soul juggernaut that encapsulates everything that Teddy Randazzo stood for.

The consummate master of the the New York Big Production, perfectly pausing that calming slow-down before the big explosion lift-off of soaring horns, zipping strings, celestial girls, crashing cymbals and booming brass. The perfect platform for his silky Brooklyn-brogue and Italian charm to glide right into the heart of the NS dancefloor with.

Currently sleeping after it's Northern Soul peak earlier this century, but now starting to break surface again, as NS quality of this calibre cannot snooze for too long. A Randazzo awakening is perched and ready to fly thanks to "lockdown" home DJing exposure. Also the DCP promo being a tempting vinyl-vista; especially as this tune has escaped any significant bootlegging over the years. Just a brief "Stardust" label outing. An imprint few DJ's would be blatant enough to grace their turntables with.

Before you today is the 1965 VINYL promo, an exceptional gleaming condition copy of this superior "Big City" beater
