It’s Friday . . . Let’s Dance

We are back in northern soul territory this week.

First up we have Millie Jackson with a track which was actually a hit in the US in 1972 it is also # 100 in the Northern Soul Top 500, blowing another myth that all northern soul classics are rare.

Millie Jackson – My Man Is A Sweet Man.

Secondly we have Sissie Houston, yip Whitney’s mom with an absolute belter of a track.

Sissie Houston – Bring Him Back

and finally Melba Moore, with a track from 1967 which lay unreleased until it was discovered on a master and became an anthem in the ’80s. I remember hearing it a lot at dances and runs during 87/88.

Melba Moore – The Magic Touch

    Magic Touch is one of my fave Northern tunes, but I only know it bythe Bobby Fuller Four (which you can grab as part of a mix < HREF="http://planetmondo.blogspot.com/2007/10/funky-friday-tunes-from-crypt.html" REL="nofollow">here<> ) – so the Melba version is a real treatLuther Ingrams Exus Trek is probably all time favourite of all time though grabbable < HREF="http://planetmondo.blogspot.com/2007/12/funky-friday-birthday-treat.html" REL="nofollow">here<>

    Thanks for the mix MondoThe Melba Moore is the original, although the Bobby Fuller version was played at the Casino.Exus Trek is a very good tune and at £150 a pop for the single rather expensive.
