The Skull Snaps originally started life as The Diplomats (one of several groups under that moniker) but when they released their one and only album in 1973 on GSF they had fully re-emerged as the group that would lay down one of the most indemand albums ever. The thumping ‘My Hang Up Is You’ is rightfully a northern soul classic, the much sampled break of ‘It’s A New Day’ is a funk staple while the stunning crossover ‘Didn’t I Do It To You’ is a sublime slab of soul with a beat. The menacing chase-funk of ‘All of A Sudden’ and the pounding ‘I’m Your Pimp’ (also a classic Northern soul spin) are also highlights while the bouncing funker ‘Trespassing’ highlights the superb harmonies and invention in the group. The crashing beat ballad ‘I Turn My Back On Love’ and the brilliant crossover ‘I’m Falling Out Of Love’ are also vital. Let’s not forget the sublime slowie ‘Having You Around’ too. Brilliant, essential album. Masterpiece.
