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
