Product Notes

Jerry Williams JR was born in Virginia in 1942 and is best known by his alter-ego Swamp Dogg. He has enjoyed a prolific career as an artist, writer and producer scoring hits for Gene Pitney, Doris Duke, Dee Dee Warwick, Freddie North and Johnny Paycheck. He has recorded a number of collectable up tempo and deep soul sides including "She's So Divine", a 3-figure rarity recorded for Academy Records in 1963. But it is his self-penned "If You Ask Me (Because I Love You)" that catapulted him into the Northern Soul hall of fame and remains a much cherished and in demand dance floor filler. We also feature another favourite Calla Recording, written and produced by Williams, "Just What Do you Plan To Do About It". Club Soul are proud to feature these two iconic songs back-to-back as a new-to-vinyl coupling. The 7-inch single, the official vinyl reissue on replica label, features a dinked-centre and audio cut pure analogue from the original master tapes. Welcome to the club. The place to meet THE faces, hear THE tunes and read THE stories behind the "Sound Of Soul" in the UK. And that's our manifesto here at Club Soul. To trace the evolution of the rare soul scene in the UK through Britain's clubland. A scene that would become known as Northern Soul, a scene fuelled on rare Black American 45s, a scene fuelled on one-upmanship. A working class scene of solidarity that came of age in the North of England in the seventies capturing the heart and soul of the Nation's youth seduced by it's secret world of all-night dancing.
