Crackin' Up Over You

I can't believe that I have not featured this absolute classic northern soul sound which has been a huge track with the allniter crowd since 1971 and still sounds great. This was no small obscure label release either being released on RCA Victor in 1966 albeit on the flip side of  Walk Hand In Hand. Roy Hamilton had been making records since 1948  when he started out as part of a gospel act and had hits with Unchained Melody and You'll Never Walk Alone. Everything about this record is huge from the dramatic intro, the driving beat and the emotional vocal delivery, They don't get much better than this.
