This record is as good as soul gets, no argument, more than the sum its parts, the perfect moment captured. Few records are coveted by so many rare 45 collectors as Fred Williams only outing on Solo records, hence a clean copy recently changed hands for £3000
I first heard this in the early 2000's when hardcore US Collector Dante Carfange & Chad Weekley (Memphix records) came to Edinburgh to D.J at our weekly club 'Motherfunk'. After their U.K tour many deepfunk collectors went after the single but the record has remained elusive.
Dante Carfange went on to compile the amazing Numero Group Compilation 'Eccentric Soul: Smart's Palace' which included both these sides. After meeting Rob and Ken from Numero Group in Edinburgh last year they kindly agreed to licence Fred Williams to 'Athens of the North' as a single so here we are at last, this amazing piece of music is finally affordable on vinyl. Just buy it.

Greg Foat has those moments when heart, colour, emotion, silence and sound are just in complete alignment.
That kind of harmony always hits home for me as it just creates a super warm and loving vibration.
Antonio’s Theme for example creates such a moment for me.
Funny enough I was just listening to the Honey Bear when I stumbled over this record. Talking about synchronicity. Thank you. Vikrant Kumar Thomas Junk
