This is an 'evergreen' early 60s Detroit RnB dancer with all the right ingredients for an all-nighter.

Correc-tone was one of the early influencial Detroit independent labels.  Unfortunately there were only 11 releases before it folded owing to cash flow problems.  Many of the artists are well known and loved in Northern Soul circles such as Wilson Pickett (who had the first release on the label 501), Yvonne Vernee (featured earlier in the NS600 series) and Danny Woods all having solitary releases and Theresa Lindsay who would issue 3 45s on the label.  Read all about Correc-Tone @ SoulfulDetroit

Danny Woods would later go on to join Chairman Of the Board on Invictus after Holland Dozier Holland left Motown in 1967 teaming up with General (Norman) Johnson, Eddie Curtis and Harrison Kennedy.  General Johnson had previously been lead singer with The Showmen who had a moster on the scene with 'Our Love Will Grow'.

Danny released a solo LP 'Aries' on Invicus in 1972.  The stand-out tracks are his solo version of 'Working On A Building Of Love', 'Roller Coaster' and 'Two Can Be As Lonely As One'.
