When a record has been part of the Northern Soul staple diet since 1970, it's not easy to add anything to enhance this records already humongous reputation...50 years of packing the dancefloors across Britain you'd think this classic would have become tiresome at some point during our lifetime. But not at all, it still ignites frenetic dancefloor excitement every time it hits the turntable.

So much going on, to partner that vibrant growling lead vocal. The rattling drum intro collides with a bombardment of brass, burping saxophone intrusions pepper the production about to be taken to another level by one of the most exhilarating sax-breaks of all-time. Male vocal choruses chime their approval at ever opportunity, decorating the fuller than full backing.. . a truly glorious example of the finest Northern Soul has to offer.

In more recent times, NS DJ's a have also taken to spinning the nearly as good "Let's Get Together" flipside.

Enough of my take on it... just click the sound file... for an out of your body experience that will take you back to every Northern Soul club that you have ever visited.

When a 45 is as classic as this guaranteed perennial knew all of the above, already didn't you.

Condition Report

Clean a-side label, flipside label reveals some some insignificant light numbers/writing on flipside label (see images), good gloss on vinyl, some light surface blemises but as you can hear it plays, proper impressive loud and totally clean.
