The very excellent Derek's Daily 45 had the original version of this by Frankie Valli a couple of weeks back..
Derek's Daily 45 - Franki Valli - You're Ready Now
(I didn't even know there was an earlier version of this!) which prompted me to dig this out. A nice bit of punk/glam from the Manchester band. They'd been dumped by Decca at this point and were signed to DJM records for this one. Got to wonder how they came across the tune.. maybe a crossover from the Northern Soul scene? Still sounds good.. from 1979.
