Description

The elusive 1969 FIRST Rite Sound press, NOT the later reissue, a 45 that is so very hard to acquire in its authentic original form.

Check out those two clean labels, proudly displaying the distinctive "high ridge" landscape, heavy-duty thick vinyl; plus of course displaying the "RITE" matrix stamp in the deadwax, the signature of "Rite Sound" pressing plant, who had built up reputation for high quality record reproduction since 1955. Even though "Rite Sound" were local Ohio based they pulled in business from all over the USA.

Again, Jeff Smith delivers a double vocal-group delight after spending just over a year away from this talented gathering, recorded in 1968, released in 1969 this 45 also gives up Soul Vocal Group Heaven no matter which side you drop the arm on.

Columbus, Ohio throughout the 60's & 70's provided the rare Soul collector with a plethora of standout 45s, this the 2nd example this month from the talented Jeff Smith arguably being just ass convicing as "Your Love Makes Me Lonely" again offering slick Northern Soul dance, combined with superior vocal-harmony ballad on the flip.

Not soulful sulking on this session... the stunningly seamless lead vocal, so well supported by a deeper harmony backing chorus, From the outset this is finger-clicking Northern Soul that needs no more than a split second to be drawn into dance-mode; with a fabulous saxophone partition towards the end the icing on the cake.

Flip it over, to be treated to mid-paced Low-Rider soulful excellence, as the group support a beseeching feeling-foolish rejected man, to float his despair out on a wave of rich choruses... a top drawer ballad indeed.

Two killer sides presented here as the FIRST PRESS "RITE" stamped matrix... for those of you who only entertain authentic originals firsts into their collection.
