My favourite. Loads of happy memories. Me and Alan in our old stomping ground (Nags Head ,Carlton Hill) playing pretend violins and bopping around like madmen to it (Every one else in the pub looking at us 'gone out')

Just played it to my little lad and he started doing the dance and singing along (Even though it was just La la la and it only lasted a minute, but it was worth missing RIAT for)

How about Sly & The Family Stone and I Want To Take You Higher, hopefully it's classed as soul.

I didnt realise it but I had it on a vinyl compilation that Kev Roberts gave me back in 1980 when he was a regular guest on my show on Trent, and more recently was reminded how good it was when I was looking at a You tube vid of a comp northern soul in Alfreton, and then found I had it on cd as well.

Aha - but which CD? and did you take a look at the website?
