Quantrells / Promise Can't Let You Break My Heart / I'm Not Ready For Love

    Deptford Northern Soul Club Records
      • 1. Can’t Let You Break My Heart
      • 2. I’m Not Ready For Love

      Quantrells’ only single release from 1972 goes for two to three hundred pounds if you can find a copy on the Chicago-based Yambo label. A deep soul smoocher with a glorious vocal with enormous brass stabs, it’s like a roughed up version of The Jackson 5.

      Backed with Promise’s ‘I’m Not Ready For Love’; one of two singles from the mid ‘70s by this all-girl teenage four piece on the New Directions label. Built with a driving bass and the girls’ gorgeous vocals dropping into party mode over a funky guitar break midway through, it’s a classic ice breaker. Copies go for around £100.

      All tracks remastered from the original sound source.
