OSV173 A. Pointer Sisters - Send Him Back B. Drifters - You Got To Pay Your Dues
THE POINTER SISTERS first came to the attention of the Northern Soul scene when the shook the floor at the dawn of Wigan Casino All-Nighters with their storming ‘Atlantic’ 45 “Send Him Back”. The group, sisters June, Ruth and Anita Pointer went on to fame and fortune with multiple Grammy’s when they switched to ‘Blue Thumb’ Records but nothing could touch the atmospheric “Send Him Back”.
THE DRIFTERS need little introduction with their string of hits on both sides of the Atlantic. They’ve also enjoyed consistent plays on the rare soul scene including their fifties recording “Drip Drip” through to their late seventies UK rarity “Pour Your Little Heart Out”. But here we feature the pinnacle of their Northern Soul output “You Got To Pay Your Dues” featuring the late great Johnny Moore.
