The glorious SOUL7 Rare Soul Reissue Series spins, slides and drops its way feet first deep into Northern Soul territory to bring you not one but three 45s featuring heavyweight anthems taken from the WAND label individually tried and tested on some of the worlds most demanding dancefloors. Northern aficionados are probably the most discerning of ALL record collectors, we re already come up with some beauties that have had all but the most staid gasping for breath ? and heres some more!
Kicking off a trio of 45s handpicked from the legendary Wand back catalogue we’re proud to present Milwaukee born Betty Moorer’s sassy, Latin influenced ‘Speed Up’ a record that never fails to please the crowd. Listen carefully and you can hear the Esquires keeping it in the family and providing backing vocals – two of Betty’s brothers were in the group. Flip it over for a low slung cover of ‘It’s My Thing’ and you’ve got a winning pair. (added: 2010-01-21 09:18:07 )
