"The Pain Gets A Little Deeper"... and nobody portrays "Pain" quite like Darrow Fletcher.

A soul artist who has never recorded a record I don't adore, I like every single he has ever made. Then, when I witnessed him live on stage at Cleethorpes weekender in 2006; he cast his spell, elevating himself into my all-time favourite Soul vocalist. Waterig my eyes, sending shivers down the back of my neck, with his unique manner of subtly delivering despair, hurt and hopelessness with a tender but totally convincing touch. That comes through equally moving, on vinyl as well as on stage.

This "child prodigy's" first recording, he collaborated with Ted Daniels abd Maurice Simpkins, a powerful Chicago session, painting a poignant picture of a young man's heartbreak. This son of the Detroit Ghetto was only 14 years old when he created this blinding 45. That went on to become a Twisted Wheel favourite and now heralded as a Northern Soul timeless classic across the world.

Criminally neglected in his homeland, Darrow and his music is held in such high regard in the UK, that most all 60's Soul fans, can sing this anthem out loud. Here is Darrow's first 45, introducing him to our shores, a beautifully clean 1966 London copy. Of an unforgettable youngster singing his pain.

Listen and weep ... but do not overlooked the flipside, yet another "Darrow" masterpiece awaits...
