Karmello Brooks - tell me baby.mp3

I came across this track by setting my mp3 player to random last night. It was on a Northern Soul Kent comp that i hadn't got round to listening to, and then forgot about. It kicks in with that classic Motown snare roll, but the first few seconds are almost like a false start, sounding like Can's "vitamin C". It's less than two minutes long, vocals are fantastic, especially that Debbie Harry-esque growl at about 1:05... and the orchestral arrangement is spot on. Everytime i hear it i close my eyes, and i am in Wigan with sweat on my brow at about 4:30am....
