Truly Smith - I Wanna Go Back There Again (1967)
An underrated singer, with a style not so different from early Kiki Dee, Truly Smith is now remembered for a number of fantastic Northern Soul anthems issued by Decca, such as Chris Clark 'I Wanna Go Back There Again' (see the clip below), Smokey Robinson's 'My Smile is Just a Frown Turned Upside Down' and Gerry Goffin/Carole King 'The Boy From Chelsea'. The quality of her vocals and her choice of material should have made the Warrington lass a star in the UK – and despite TV and live promotion, an attempt to launch the singer in the rest of Europe also stalled. I believe there is enough material hidden somewhere to release a decent compilation by this great blue-eyed soul artist, so I would like to know why is it that nobody has done it yet!!
