Written and produced by the great Ashford and Simpson I thought this Mary Love track is just perfect for the weekend. Mary commands us to dance, but with this solid beat there's nothing much else to do than dance!
Mary Love herself is one of those Soul troopers that never did quite made it, but is still active today. Her Modern recordings have gradually become legendary in some cicles and are well worth checking out. Soulsource had the pleasure of interviewing Mary a few years back. Still a great read on this power house.
Granted, the Music Explosion were not the first to record this track, the Little Darlings were. The Darlings however failed to make any impression on the airwaves, while the Music Explosion were everywhere for a while, raching all the way up to #2 in the charts. For the Music Explosion it was their only real hit, but at least they remain Garage legends to this day!
The Mc Coys was one of those bands that scored one monster hit only to slip into obscurity afterwards. Theirs was Hang On Sloopy. A cover of My Girl Sloopy by the Vibrations. Bt as is often the case, being a one hit wonder, doesn't mean they don't have a few killer 45s to spare. Say Those Magic words is one of those 45s that went unnoticed by the larger public. The air waves were poorer for it!
The Upper Shelves are hottest DJ collective of the Netherlands. Or at least as hot as the wax they are spinning. Guaranteed all killer, no filler! In a country with more DJs than civil servants that's saying something!
The Upper Shelves come with one promise, we’ll burn up your dance floor with the power of the 45! Though we have been known to sneak in a vinyl LP once in a great while.
Garage, Soul, R&B and Rock & Roll is our degree, with the occasional curve ball thrown in for good measure. We’ll bring you all the great hits, including the ones you forgot.
This Blog will give you an impression of our greatness, or should I say the mind blowing power of the 45. To be honest, we just drop the needle on them.
This blog is intended primarily for promotional use. We feel this music deserves to be spread around and we encourage everybody visiting to go out and buy it. Preferably on 45, but we do not look down on the convenience of getting a CD. If in any way you feel we are violating your copy right by our posts, let us know, we’ll glad to oblige by taking the post in question down.
