Where to start with this tune? HUGE! I first copped this on an old Philly compilation by the righteous Norman Jay, many moons ago, where it was THE standout tune (big call, especially when other names on the comp were the cream of Philadelphia International!)
It really came into it's own for me though when I moved to London a few years back, and would hear it played on many occasions at Jazz Re:Freshed, an excellent night on Portobello Road (still run to this day by the mighty Uprock crew. Big ups!)... Also shouts to the master, Manuel Bundy, who I've heard drop this more than once or twice!
Beautiful arrangement, beautiful vocals (check the baritone and falsetto styles!), wonderful soul music. Bump this, nice and loud, ripped from vinyl to a nice 320 mp3. Enjoy!
