09. Billy Joe Royal – Hearts Desire

by standardliss

This is one of my favorite discoveries digging in a while. I went through a ton of old Northern Soul compilations, lists online, Kev Roberts Northern Soul 500, dollar bins all over both coasts of the United States and its all worth it to find a tune like this. I love that this was a country song that sounded like a soul song, no one gave a shit and the northerners embraced it whole heartedly nonetheless. This is the original 45 that I bought from a cool little record store in Niagara Falls, upstate New York.
