    Few little factual errors here
    As EMI were in the throws of loosing the UK/Euro licence of Motown to RCA/Ariola the parting gift was the UK release of this hallowed gem.............and to add to the finger up, 95% of the presings came with Demo Single labels, (I have yet to see an EMI non demo label) IMHO the only foolish gaff was this came out in the same mono mix as the USA would have done all those years ago All RCA did was use the same acquired metals reissue it in the same but not as a demo!
    Polygram when they took over Motown from RCA/BMG/Ariola and hurded it under the house of Mercury they too released this BUT with the Chris Clark vocal on the B (the backing track was used by both Frank and Chris) however there was an almighty gaff the cutting engineer took the stereo master and used just the right channel and folded it down to mono! Had a Green card die-cut sleeve side opening It sounds vile and had everything missing (Polygram were good at this, they did the same with The Osmonds One Bad Apple when it came out on a 4 track 12" one track of the stereo folded down to mono!)
    I am amazed that no-one has listed the corrected and put right release by UMG with its silly long number smaller logo labels small hole un-dinked pressing in a retro Tangerene die-cut card sleeve but guess what>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>it's STEREO and blows your socks off.
    This track has to be heard in stereo, owned in stereo and loved in stereo. fact

    This record was recorded back in 1965 on Motown. The story goes that after recording it Berry Gordy, the founder of Motown, ordered Frank to concentrate on writing rather than singing. The record never saw the light of day, because Gordy commanded to destroy all promo copies.

    In 1977 Tom Dieperro, a Motown historian who worked for them in the mid 70's, found a surviving copy and later Simon Soussan discovered it while perusing Tom's record collection. Simon recognised this as being a perfect record for the northern soul scene where rarity was an integral part of the DJ's attraction. Northern soul dj's were constantly seeking new records that nobody else had. They even covered up the labels and changed the artist name to prevent other DJ's tracking down the same title.

    So, Frank's one single, ended up getting credited to 'Eddie Foster', it became a huge hit in the scene, and it wasn't until 1978 that the truth was discovered. The one known copy changed hands for increasingly high prices, whilst a second copy was discovered in 1990. In 1996 the record was bought by Kenny Burrel for 15.000 pounds - making it the most expensive record ever.
