Tonik's Lab

Best known for 'Gonna Hang On In There', it's storming Northern Soul flip side, the more subtle 'Night Bloomin' Jasmin' also has admirers on the rare soul scene. Modernists, in particular, will go for the suave jazz-elegance of this recording which is even scarcer than it's original A side - due to being one of two different flips. The unrelated, bar the LA source of origin, 'Tricky Too' by pianist Gus Jenkins is a laidback instrumental groove, written as a sequel to his 1956 smash hit 'Tricky'. Completed with a hip brass section, it failed to get a release until Ace bought the catalogue, unearthed the tape and slotted it into the 2012 "Mod Jazz Forever" CD.
