Does anyone know a track called "OOH BABY I BELIEVE IM LOSING YOU" by BILLY HAWKES off the album: HEAVY SOUL (PRESTIGE)? It has been played on the Jazz Dance scene in the 80's/90's.

Has anyone ever heard it played at a soul event? Its much more Soul than Jazz with a great handclapping beat with just a slight jazz tinge. It is an absolute stormer of a record. Ive never heard it played at a Northern do but I reckon it would be big if played.

Never released on 45 as far as I know so thats maybe why no Northern DJ's have picked up on it. If I ever get behind the decks at a do I will be spinning it. Cant recommend it enough.

It's had lots of plays on Mod Scene over last 15 years+

It has been played at Northern Soul nights/allnighters but can't recall hearing it at a soul event for a long time.

It did get a 7" foreign release (though I can't remember which country...) Mik Parry has a copy.
