One of England's truly great blue-eyed Soul boys.. with his rarest 45 on the coveted Immediate label.

This was Chris's first single for the label who made him a star; A 50's classic tune "The Fool" is reworked, ignoring both The Gallahads and Sanford Clark's Country-rocking influences. Prodcer Eric Burdon turns it into an additive slab of R&B Popcorn; a shuffler that creeps under your skin. To make sure we understand the passion both Eric Burdon & Chris Farlowe have for R&B, the pair deconstruct Roy Head's "Treat Her Right". Erasing "Texas" attitude, replacing it "British MOD" passion, producing an insane Hipshaker. Check out a proper Club-mover for your brogues to kick into.

No easy 45 to find, it fail miserably in shops.

Today 54 years later to find a flawless copy, sitting snug in it's birth sleeve, is a rare indeed.
