In the minds and memory of the Wigan Casino congregation who still faithfully attended allniter throughout the late 70's, this discovery covered-up as Joe Matthews was the discovery that gave a Wigan Casino a second lease of life. Just as serious collectors and dancers thought Northern Soul records of this quality were an endangered species. One of the NS "finds" of the last century was unleased by Richard Searling onto a stunned Casino congregation.

Even more so in 2021 this 45 is coveted as one of Northern Soul's most important records, ever.

This Holy Grail in utterly immaculate mint minus condition, still holds the power to send electricity and shivers down this old man's spine.

One of the ultimate Northern Soul in "impossibly" fine condition.

Do what you need to do, to secure a record of a lifetime...
