No Stranger To Love  

This is one of those rare synth laden funk tunes that still manages to get name checked by the Northern Soul heads. I'm not a scholar of Northern by any means, but I know enough to know that those that are rarely feel anything out of my crates, there isn't much crossover, but Glenda Mcleod's No Stranger To Love is an exception. 'A Stafford classic!' they will say. I like Stafford, with it's easy access to the M6 and pleasant pedestrianized neo classical shopping precinct. This tune is great.

    This boogie track is very efficient (on the dancefloor, at home, anywhere) I really like this song, thanks for "airing" it on BE. Funky post !

    From what I understand from a friend that used to go Stafford was pretty open minded, a lot of modern was played with some of it (i.e. Gwen McCrae "Keep the fire burnin'") being quite 'commercial'. By all accounts it was a great night. They did a Stafford re-union recently, not sure how it went. How I rememner the controversy when Luther's "Let it slide" was played at a modern night for the first time!!!
