Love Will Come
20 years ago, the previously unissued 'Love Will Come' was featured on a compilation of Northern Soul style tracks from Philadelphia. Here it finally gets a much-deserved vinyl pressing courtesy of MD Records. It's well worth picking up, because it's a mid-1960s gem that combines a Northern Soul-friendly stomping soul groove with boisterous, celebratory horns and simply superb lead vocals from Patty Russell. Quite why it has never made it onto wax before remains a mystery; either way, we're glad it finally has. Turn to the flip and you'll find a previously unheard treat from the band: an answer record to their successful single 'Mixed Up, Shook Up, Girl' to adds doo-wop style harmony vocals to a handclap-heavy, pop-soul backing track of the sort that was so popular in 1964.
