AIN’T NO SOUL LEFT IN THESE OLD SHOES – UK PYE (orig. Major Lance)
Ronnie Milsap recorded a cover version of Ain’t No Soul Left In These Old Shoes which was a great success at original Northern Soul Clubs. Although the original by Major Lance was well known, Ronnie Milsap’s version was much more ‘in the groove’ and a better dance number.
However, most Northern Soul fans were somewhat horrified to learn later that Ronnie was a white country singer. By then it was too late to dump it, it was too big a floor filler!
There was a PYE EP with Ronnie Milsap and Roscoe Robinson and that’s why That’s Enough and Ain’t No Soul Left In These Old Shoes were played back to back – it was simply left to run one after the other.
