Northern Soul classics - Quicksand - Martha & The Vandellas

There are two classic midsummer Northern records both by Martha and the Vandellas, one is the timeless "Heatwave", and the other is this one. In the mid 60's when the new fangled transistor radios came out, we were able to walk around the local park, or for us down at the lake at bathpool, or even on some occasions at the open air swimming pool at Trentham Gardens listening to Radio Caroline, though constantly having to retune. We could imagine the kids in America driving around in their open topped cars with this stuff blaring out. The closest we could think of here was our head teacher who had a convertible old Ford Consul.
