Sometimes you are fortunate enough hear a sister-soul vocal that stops you in right in your tracks.

After La Vorn Smith finishes her rap intro, her trembling voice softly glides skyward into a mood changing journey into her impending crushing pain. A convincing portrayal of a young girl's error of not revealing her true feelings, when she had the chance. A reflective song saturated in regret, her palpable remorse so sweetly embodied in her delivery, cradled by the experienced Memphis(Goldwax) schooled Donnie & Fonnie Harley on Earl Wright's independent Hue label.

This is the full version of this Memphis Donnie & Fonnie Harley collaboration, led by a goose-bump inducing vocal by "The Lady", Both sides showcasing beseeching sister lead vocal fully supported by the experienced "Harleys" truly gorgeous soulful stepper...

Flip it for a signature Earl Wright horn-filled dancer, driven by persistent guitar pulses, the now more urgent "Lady" serves up grittier vocal, again exquisitely supported by her "Gents" a meaty dancer. but " I Can Feel The Tears" is still in my head, making me shiver - what a voice!

Two great sides, one very elusive disc, in superb condition.
