A. The M.V.P.'s - Turnin' My Heartbeat Up (Stereo)B. The M.V.P.'s - Turnin' My Heartbeat Up (Mono)
THE M.V.P.’s burst into life on the Northern Soul scene back in 1975 courtesy of Blackpool Mecca DJ Ian Levine and has long since divided opinion. Is it pop, is it soul, are they black, are they white, etc etc. Well, it’s a rock record from 1971 and has nothing to do with soul… but everything to do with Northern Soul! It packed the floor at the Highland Room and was adopted as a Wigan Casino anthem and immortalized by Tony Palmer in his 1977 Granada TV documentary This England. It was reissued by UK Buddah, due to popular demand, driven in no small part by the TV show and its 20 million viewers. Now, some 40 years on, we present the iconic track, both stereo and mono mixes, as mastered at the time by Bell Sound’s senior engineer Joe Breschie.
