Scotty Williams - In The Same Old Way - Jubilee Promo

Condition: Very Good + /h02

This weeks BEST OFFERING at better than 1/2 price, is a stunning slab of Soulful Northern from the prolific pens of J. L. Jackson & Sidney Barnes. A New York creation of the highest quality. The attention grabbing intro instantly pulls you in - a lonely piano, cymbals and then that howling -rasp of a vocal.

Yes, totally STUNNING and today it is better tan 1/2 price - light water stained label and a few insignificant vinyl blemishes and a solid £150 winner could be yours for way better than 1/2 price.

Not overlooking to killer Deep Soul on the flipside.

Four Hi's - Pretty Little Face / Train- Verve
