Lifted from his coveted 1972 album "Occasional Rain" with both sides of the album featuring a 38 second intro of "Go Head On" before "Ordinary Joe" bursts forth. With his "opening line" that triggers arguably the finest slab of laidback Jazz/Soul dance ever presented to the Northern Soul dancefloor... everybody loves "Ordinary Joe" .

Made immortal by Terry's unparalleled gift for mixing the two genres with a seamless ease of social comment delivered by his beautifully "cracked" vocal, partitioned by fluid "scat" and simplistic piano notes. Mr. Callier tiptoes through the irresistible piano rhythms, his voice rising up stronger and stronger as he absorbs himself in his carefully crafted lyrics.

Just brilliant, a flawless masterpiece of his own creation, that has been universally applauded for several decades now, without ever becoming in the slightest, tired or overplayed.

Damn hard to acquire, the few owners will never part company with this treasure of our scene.
