Verna Francis sings "Like A Live Wire". It is true to say that I have tried many times in my life to capture that quintessence of what makes a Northern Soul record actually work on the dancefloor, and with records like Sidney Barnes "Standing On Solid Ground" and Chuck Jackson "All Over The World", I certainly hit a popular chord. Everything about this wonderful song suggests the magic and energy of the era that I fell in love with as a teenager. Forget the purists, this one has it all. Verna Francis, along with Tahira Jumah, Fay Jones, Shenton Dixon and Winston Ward represents the new generation. Tahira found the wonderful Winston Ward, who, in turn, introduced me to this utterly fabulous soul diva, Verna Francis. This track comes from my album "Northern Soul 2008" which was released on June 30th, 2008. Verna and I co-wrote this wonderful song which sounds like a classic Blackpool Mecca floorfiller, the type that made the entire club run onto the floor from every corner of the room.
