very rare ORIGINAL 1978 stock copy press.

Eugene followed the Chi-Lites to Chicago after a show he attended, in Chicago he become a "Visitor" from Kansas City. There he recorded those wonderfully Jazzy/Soul grooves for Twinight Records. That the label released as "The Mist" without "The Visitors" knowing anything about it. They then went under the wings of Chicago's finest writer, producers. Releasing 3 45's for Dakar and 1 for Dispo (The Visitors on Tangerine Records are a totally different group). Although the Dakar 45's did OK The Visitors disbanded, leaving Mel Britt and Ray Foreman (see Living Color listing) behind. Eugene decided to return to the he musical vibe he remembered, the busy musical buzz of the Kansas City hang-outs.

With a wealth of experience under his belt he co-wrote and recorded this 1978 rarity . A dancefloor favourite through the 90's, every rare-soul venues across Europe. Especially the Scandinavia clubs dedicated to the sound of feelgood Rare-Soul.

Having said it's a huge European club favourite, I did find out it is also cvarries fan in his home town of Kansas City. I did play it in a DJ I did at the "Ship" in Kansas City and the bar totally erupted...

Before you today is the increasingly challenging to find authentic 1978 press in fine clean condition.. NOT the reissue but the genuine article, so very hard to acquire.

Click the soundfile and await Eugene to elevate your day.

PS the flipside is a moving souful stepper - do not pass by.
