Crazy about Crossover... if you're not... you are surely about to be

This exemplary, fully orchestrated 1968 New York floater, captures the very essence of the Northern Soul Crossover sound. Blending a room crammed with talent. Proper musicians, real instruments, glorious soaring girl choruses and a mature experienced purring vocal from Billy Guy convincingly hitting all highs and lows, within this affirmation of love, with perfect timing and controlled emotion.

On the instrumental side you can fully appreciate the no expense spared orchestral arrangement. Spiraling strings the foundation for discreet horns to waft a warm breeze through the background, a bevvy of girls elevate the backing to yet another level with their rich choruses. It's classy, it's rare, it's inspiring Northern Soul Crossover dance at it's finest...

Once Billy Guy weaves his manly vocal into place, you are witnessing sheer Northern Soul resplendence!
