One of Northern Soul's most-wanted, a rarity that has over this century become one of record collecting's wisest investments.. nothing in my experience is more collectable than a Northern Soul real-deal classic rarity in tip-top condition.

This listing is of course the authentic 1965 promo, NOT the 1970's Nottingham commissioned counterfeit, that has over the years unfortunately caused a few to make a poor investment believing they were purchasing the original.

But fear not the difference between the real-thing and the fake are fairly easy to spot, we have even done a You Tube video on this very title and this flagrantly shameful counterfeit exposed with matrix images and deadwax pitting. Search for "Manship Bootlegs episode 3"

Meantime gaze upon this plain-face of gorgeousness that so many have dreamed of owning, but those opportunities are few and far between with competition mounting on the rare occasions it comes to market.

Both sides by this "one-shot" Philly girl-group who became the city's premier girl gathering as "Honey & The Bees". Jerry Ross along with Neil Brian, Joe Renzetti reactivated with "Gonna Be a Big Thing" with The Sapphires a little later. As did Johnny Pate with "Looky Looky" giving The Kittens a shot at the Ashford-Simpson-Armstead" dancer..

Few, if any Northern Soul collector or DJs want counterfeits, reissues, later versions, they want the real deal.. Ingrained into the very fabric of the Northern Soul devotee, is the need, dedication and motivation to own the real-deal first incarnation of the Northern Soul greats..

and this is it!!
