Product Notes

Vinyl LP pressing. Pastor Smokie Norful, two-time Grammy award winner, leads proceedings with the first-ever UK release of his Motown Modern Soul Anthem "I've Got What You Need". DeeJay's stand up and take note, if you subscribe to "OVO" (original vinyl only) this is your opportunity to pack the floor - Side 1, Track 1 - it couldn't be simpler! You really don't need any other reason to buy this album, but, how about our title track, the original version of "The Only Way Is Up" by the late great Otis Clay - Side 2, Track 1 - another guaranteed floorfiller. It is of course familiar to everyone for the chart-topping 1988 cover-version by Yazz and the Plastic Popualtion. Another sure-fire winner is the Cornelius Brothers' Gold Disc "Too Late Turn Back Now" which caught the imagination of the rare soul scene in the Nineties and remains a firm dance floor favorite today. We must also be grateful for the first ever independent license of Jerry Butler's awesome "Stop Steppin' On My Dreams" which first came to light on his 1972 'Spice Of Life' album. And we haven't even mentioned Jesse James, Jackey Beavers, Alice Clark, Gloria Scott and the original and best version of the 'Cleopatra Jones' song "It Hurts So Good" by Katie Love.
