Now for a taste of super-rare, granite-hard neighbourhood R&B . With the mysterious John Foster and the big presence Carol Kaye, renowned L.A. guitarist! a duo ruthlessly driven onwards by Eugene Blacknell's backing band The Savonics.

You've gotta be a brave man to cheat on Carol, a sassy lady who takes no messing around. Her commanding vocal tells her man to "Get Your Hat" and get on out. This wailing, screeching, backside kicking lady whilst still being able to ratchet up some insane guitar workings, brilliantly supported by "The Savonics" punctuating this mighty potent statement, you just have to take notice of.

Forget about all the other Sister R&B you've heard before this thumper, nothing gets close to the fearless vocal barrage from "Carol", elevated to yet another level by her vengeful guitar venting.

This is R&B Northern Soul at its most motivating, delivered by an uncompromising, ungooglable duet supported by a seasoned, funk-drenched instrumental group.

A record made in late 1963, is surely way before it's time. Sucking all it's energy from The Ghetto, decorated with the hardness of life's experiences. Carol takes no "shit", John is outta there before he gets more than just a lashing of Carol's tongue. Carol is in no mood for forgiveness, The Savonics support her attitude with a destructive display of explosive rhythms. Producing a lethal R&B cocktail of NS dance..

BRILLIANT!! and damn rare!
