The rarest of the 3 label variations of this release, the black label silver text. Considered it's very first pressing.

Arranged by an important cog in the Frank Wilson writing and producing team, Jerry Long directing a fabulous arrangement melding soaring strings, burping sax and stabbing horns enriched by male vocal-group choruses; Providing the ideal backdrop for the Queen of Los Angeles neighbourhood Soul to rest her tortured vocal upon. Nobody transmits emotion quite like Ty Karim, her gravel coated, Lioness growl saturated in pain on every word..

It is 45's of this standing that make you realize, that if it wasn't for the unrelenting passion of the Northern Soul pioneers to discover more and more masterpieces "lost" in the deluge of independent 45's released through the decades, that had little or no chance of ever making outside of their neighbourhood...this quality of Soul music would have been lost forever.

Writer/producer Ken Harris contributed several real killers towards the NS cause, how frustrating must it have been to make exceptional records and not break through into the big time, or indeed to pocess a voice of Ty Karim's magnitude, to have not been recognised worldwide as a Royal Soul Diva. Rather than decades after their work was first captured on vinyl to be belated heralded as Los Angeles finest Sister vocal and Kent Harris as one of the city's most gifted producers..

"Wear Your Natural, Baby" encapsulates everything Northern Soul stands for, an outlet for exceptional talent that never had the opportunity to get their music into the wider music..

Here's you're chance to own an exemplary treasure of "lost" Soul no matter which side you drop the needle on..
