Wade In Water
There has always been a place for instrumentals on the northern soul scene and Wade In Water is probably the first major one on the scene and it's between this or the instrumental version of Ann Perry's That's The Way He Is that is my favourite.
Ramsey Lewis is a jazz composer and piano player who hit the big time in the US with three million selling number one singles in 1966, of which this track is one. It is just such an effortlessly cool track which is impossible not to tap your foot, nod your head or get up and shuffle to. Go on listen and stay motionless. If you can, you have no soul.
