That's Not Love
Here's a track that I used to be tortured over when young and wanting to be seen as the cool, knowledgeable soul fan with impeccable taste.
That's Not Love was pop song, not northern soul I was told and should not be taken seriously, but those drums, that beat, the anguished vocals not to mention the Spectorish production what's not to like? It wasn't until about ten years ago or so I felt comfortable enough to admit to myself how much I liked this record. Fucking sad isn't it? But that is another facet of northern soul.
While I'm in such a confessional mood I would also like to put on record that I bloody love Wayne Gibson's cover of Under My Thumb. There I've said it and feel all the better for it.
