Originally released in 1969 on Deram Records (SML1046), Sounds Like The Flirtations is regarded as one of the top 1960s British-produced soul/R&B albums by an all-American girl group. The album was originally reviewed by New Music Express in July 1969, who hailed it as “Made-In-Britain Motown Sound”.
Reissued for the very first time on vinyl as a limited print run, the album has been carefully remastered from the original master tapes and is presented in a deluxe ‘60s style sleeve (flip-back heavy weight card with laminated front) with original cover art plus a 12×12 insert with photos and a new essay by Sean Cassey from the respected UK magazine Shindig).
The album features the highly-praised classic soul single “Nothing But A Heartache” which was a top 40 hit in the US, where it spent 14 weeks on the Billboard Top 100; as well as enjoying chart successes in the UK, the Netherlands, Canada, Australia and elsewhere. It has become a Northern Soul classic ever since.
