A former American soldier who came to England in the early 60's where he carved a quick reputation singer lead for Alexis Korner before forming his own band that took the British MOD scene by a storm, naming his backing band as "The Night-Timers"" a direct affirmation of their intended "All Night Club" invasions. Becoming a cornerstone of the MOD Club movement where where acts like Jimmy James & The Vagabonds, Geno Washington's Ram Jam Band, Zoot Money Big Roll Band etc. were cementing the "Soul Sound" across the British Isles..

This is Herbie Goins's 3rd and last 45 for Parlophone, even though the band had a dedicated underground appreciation, none of "Herbie" 45s sold more than a handful. By 1969 he was plying his trade in Italy, leaving a small but highly valued legacy for UK Soul collectors and MODs to cherish.

This single was his only 45 to receive a USA release. Coming out on Capitol but seldom seen for sale, and nowhere near as coveted as any of his Parlophone output.

"Coming Home To You" was written by Herbie himself, perfectly suiting his imposing beast of a vocal and the band's penchant for blasting trumpets... this mid-paced stomper inspired by in part by the Memphis Sound of Stax but shimmering from enough individuality that sets it up and away from any direct comparisons... in fact showcases the very best of British-horn backing ever committed to vinyl.

This is 100% British Soul, delivered by an American backed by arguably the most potent band of their time, "The Night-Timers" tore it up and Herbie unforgettable vocal was it's perfect spearhead.

A killer example of a bygone era, than laid the foundations for the Northern Soul and an All niter movement unique to Britain at the time.
