Ace Holder - The Eatingest Woman / Sorry I Had To Leave - Movin 142

Ace Holder

The Eatingest Woman / Sorry I Had To Leave

Movin : 142 (45s)

Meaty 1967 Compton, California R&B directed by the great Fats Washington the man who influenced and conducted so many black artists in the neighbourhood. Always producing potent , memorable material.

Both sides of this "impossible" are receiving exclusive RB DJ attention at the moment, from those Jocks lucky enough to have a copy. and I can't make up my own mind which side I prefer the best.

The brilliantly titled "The Eatingest Woman" is a smorgasbord of aggressive R&B dance, Ace's gravel-coated vocal is perfectly suite for the shouted lyrics, dramatic drum rolls and twangy Blues guitar riffs. It rolls along like a big truck that hits a wall of harmonica blasts to complete one hell of an R&B rarity.

But I really appreciate the flipside also, as Fats and A.C. again combine for an harmonica led mid-paced mover, benefitting so much from Ace's rich vocal prescience. Rattling drums again drive the session onwards, whilst off-the-scale harp-sucking n' blowing bridges the verses. Damn good tune..

Two great sides, one very hard 45 to find...
