About this item
Cobblestone “Trick Me, Treat Me” polarized opinion when it was launched onto the Northern Soul scene in the latter half of the Seventies by DJ Richard Searling. Whatever side of the cobblestone’s you were on, it captured the dance floor at Wigan Casino and became one of the biggest sounds of the decade. 40 years on and it’s still in demand, particularly with record dealers as it’s a sure-fire seller every time it’s listed – which is increasingly infrequent. “Trick Me, Treat Me” was co-written and produced by Reid Whitelaw who also gave us the brilliant “Love Is Serious Business” by Alfie Davison (also available from Outta Sight). The Moods “Rainmaker” was released in the same year as “Trick Me, Treat Me”, 1970, and was produced by Philly legend John Madara. The two sides are further connected by the aforementioned Reid Whitelaw who, today, administers the Madara catalogue, however, that’s where the similarities end.
