What are the words that describe a record that simultaneously turns you insides, upside down, bristles the hairs on your neck and wells your eyes up; All in in the same moment..

I've loved the sound of Northern Soul male-vocal group recordings all my life. As a pup it was The Four Tops, Temptations, Impressions... progressing like we all of us did to The Servicemen, The Salvados, The Tomangoes, Masqueraders etc..

In short this Talmadge Armstrong creation sends shivers down my back.. like only the truly top sounds can..

For me it has everything it takes for that goose-pimpling moment we have all encountered many, many times whilst listening to rare Northern Soul.

This one still does it for me... and no doubt everyone who ventures into that wonderful soundfile..

Condition Report

Two flawless labels. Vinyl that is equally impeccable, just one solitary light blemish on the a-side NOT affecting play in any way. A spectacular copy - strong Mint - in every way.
