Not the Brooklyn, New York Doo Wop gathering but a mysterious group put together by Arthur Wright and the multi-talented Freeman King (lyricist, actor, comedian, singer, arranger, producer ) .

Arthur Wright and Freeman King craft not one but two fabulous Northern Soul strollers, for a mysterious male vocal group to deliver with Freeman King's snarling vocal making the perfect contrast against the silkiness of his teammates. Listen to a highly recommended mid-tempo delivered by a highly accomplished harmony group.

We lead with the more mid-tempo showcasing male vocal of varying pitches all woven into a seamless flow of Soul, featuring classy Arthur Wright guitar picks, steady piano rhythms with the rustic Freeman vocal leading the way. With waves of blaring horns enriching the flow. Strong and very rare Northern Soul floater.

Vocal group aficionados will swoon upon hearing the flipside, featuring a girl vocal lead telling her man, you'll miss me, when she's gone. She convincing conveys her pain as a fanfare of trumpets play out her palpable despair. Mid-60's Low-Rider excellence of the rarest kind.. a real heart-breaking performance of a man's betrayal by a girl who's has ran out of forgiveness..

a 45's for those more investigative collectors who appreciate real-rarity; those of you seeking out the mostly undiscovered "sleepers" saturated in potential for greater things.

This private press between two good friends from November 1965 Los Angles rarity, ticks more boxes than one.
