In recent times this killer girl group has come out into the limelight, after decades of living in the shadows of other Northern Soul girl anthems like The Glories, The Sweet Things, The Gypsies, The Jelly Beans etc. as they soared to the zenith of Northern Soul popularity. This beauty with input from the great Doris Duke sat on the fringes awaiting its turn for dancefloor adulation, that never happened.

But recently DJs delving back into the scene's neglected masterworks that inexplicably missed the boat first time round. Adding Doris Willingham's girl-vocal nous, with multi-gift jazz pianist and arranger Richard Tee, guided by the prolific and utterly brilliant Richard Gottehrer, plus the founder of Sire Records Seymour Stein you have a team likely to deliver something special... and they did!

This is not only note for note comparable with any NS girl-group anthem you care to mention, with the bonus of a Deep Soul ballad on the flipside all Doris Duke admirers will be moved by.

Two standout sides, even though it has took decades for it to achieved its well deserved accolades.

Condition Report

So close to a Manship Mint. Two flawless promo labels, full gloss mint vinyl revealing only the merest sleeve storage hairline or twio.
