When a friend played Nancy Wilson - End Of Our Love, it was the first Northern Soul record i had ever heard, and was hooked after 5 seconds. That I am still loving it, and Northern Soul is a pretty fair testament of just how smacked my gob was.

Funniest thing about the Salvadors is every time we see Jo Armstead she always calls it the worst record she ever wrote!
