One of Northern Soul most-respected vocal groups with a string of top drawer offerings to their credit. Here is their seldom encountered RED TEXT promo in fine clean condition.

A delicious double helping of Detroit from the desk of "The Duke". Subtly constructed vocal group brilliance, with hints of Latin favoured brass and guitar entwining for the perfect landscape for cultured, precise male vocal harmonizing to spring from. This was the group's 8th 45 their honed teamwork shows, as coherent tightly knit voices take to the air as one!

An exceptional example of the Northern Soul male group sound, with not even a hint of any Motown influences diluting its authentic street-corner energy. This neighbourhood atmosphere is again amplified on the flipside as "One Way Lover" pours out pure Soul woven into similar horn, percussion and guitar back up. with the lead vocal in particularly poignant mood.

Both sides offer the type of stand-out tune you just cannot tire of hearing, especially if the sound quality is squeaking clean, crisp and true. A trait so rarely experienced with this title, as most copies suffer from 45 years of traveling the Northern Soul circuit, this copy has come straight from USA and yet to meet a NS turntable.
