The heavy competition the last time this stunner was listed has crowbarred another rare copy to come to market of this superior 70's Sister dancer.

Increased worldwide demand has also recently prompted a reissue in Japan as this spectacular Philly creation is rare soulful dance of the very highest quality; constructed and played out by the prodigious jazz/soul genius of Morris Bailey for his handpicked delicious female lead voice of Pearl Scott to portray. She subtly builds layers through her delivery from understated seductiveness to glass-shattering destruction, as her pleading reaches palpable desperation.

Utterly stellar Philly rare soul dancer, taking the “sound of the city” to yet another level of mood-changing dance gliding aloft on a thermal of strings and heavy-duty percussion beating out the dance pulses, lay down the landscape for her to paint her loneliness onto. From the dramatic piano intro joined by subtly swirling strings introduce this beguiling Philly masterpiece that stays with you long after the recording ends… as it advances from a casual “Hello” “nice to see you again” into a full blown beseeching “Stay With Me” that no man could brush aside…

A brilliantly playing out a heartbreaking narrative of a sister in real need...
