The seldom seen promo copy, of a tune zooming up the Northern Soul comeback trail.

It seems forever that this Washington D. C. Freddie Perrin session has sat on the threshold on Northern Soul success but never quite receiving enough plays from enough jocks at the same time, to go nationwide BIG. But always massively appreciated and much talked about.

So it seems, at this time a wider audience is at last opening up. As soon as you hear the thumping horn intro, you'll be wondering what took so long. This is a typically soaring Freddie Perrin dance Soul winner; with a back-beat rippling with vibes, twanging guitar rhythms, poking through a wall of brass. All adorned with a word perfect vocal that cuts clean through all that pounding dance arrangement.

Killer Northern Soul that has sat on the subs-bench for far too long. It now carries all the right credentials required to detonate the scene and of course explode in value..

But wait!

While the Northern Soul DJ's have pontificated over "to play or not to play" While the collectors have stroked their chins unsure whether to buy or not to buy. The worldwide "Sweet Soul" scene has been busy acquiring all and any copies that have ever surfaced for over the last 3 decades. Making this disc now a Rare 45 to find, as the "Low Rider" "Harmony-Haulers" have filled their boots upon the NS family indecision...

You will understand why when you hear the flipside "Blue Lover". Ejaculate an absolutely deluge of harmony "Sweet Soul" in a fllood of seamless harmony. A recording that screams "buy me" before everyone else discovers what lay hidden on the b-side of this Northern Soul sleeper.

Pause no more Soul Scholars worldwide, otherwise this Freddie Perrin masterpiece, will fly out of reach, perhaps forever
