CORRECT SOUNDFILE NOW IN PLACE!! apologies for the wrong sound error before. we have extended this listing for 7 more days.

Now re-check out this very rare South Carolina indie, giving up fine NS Crossover groove that rarely comes to market.. a simplistic but addictive mid-tempo, showcasing the perplexed growls of a confused Clay Brown wondering why his lady has changed. "Why You Wanna Change" is the question Clay keeps asking whilst plucking out shuffling guitar pulses as huis voice becomes more ad more pained before a terrific guitar solo bridges over to part 2.

Flip it over Clay is still no happier but still plectrum has taken on a Blues persona. As he raps to himself, as maybe the Blues route will find an answer or some reconciliation.

The strong narrative winds its way out, with no real result for his despair ever coming to fruition.

A brilliant blending of Blues Guitar and crossover Northern Soul dance spread over two contrasting parts.

Only appearing for sale less than 4 times this century - rare indeed and such a cool tune.
