Crying In The Night
There hasn't been much in the way of Northern Soul on this place for a while, I realise that there hasn't been very much of anything really but I am trying to up the posts, honest.
Crying In The Night is another of those unfathomable decisions by Motown to shelve an absolutely cracker of a track. It has all the hallmarks of a hit from the Tamla stable, a driving beat, a powerful main vocal, sweet backing vocals and those distinctive drum rolls. It was recorded on 14th June 1966 and produced by Willian Weatherspoon but never saw the light of day until it was included in the This IS Northern Soul, The Motown Sound Vol I it can also be found on a 7" boot.
