In the 70s 'Happiness Is Here' was the standard, Motown-influenced, Northern Soul play by legendary Detroit artist Tobi Lark. By the 80s and 90s soul fans tastes had matured and the slower and deeper 'Challenge My Love' took over to such an extent that it was the go-to Lark recording. The final twist was the discovery that it's flip, the moody and bluesy 'Sweep It Out In The Shed' was a new floor-filler to spin to the R&B-loving dancers. What was considered a moderately-priced collector's item is now fetching four figure sums. Our Repro recreates that longed-for pressing, but with a colourful twist.
