This week’s rare R&B grinder comes from that renowned Detroit stable of excellence; The Johnnie Mae Mathews “Big Hit” label.

A snarling, growling double edged winner, giving up an impressive slab of Motor City R&B Northern Soul on the lead side. Flip it over for a mighty Bluesy slab ofFunk.

Both sides open with a confident Daddy Walton rasp rap intro, that soon ramps up into solid dancefloor fuel. Just like his other elusive 45 on this label.

Both benefitting fromJohnnie Mae’s producing nous. Not only is Big Hit an highly collectable label, here is one of it’s rarest 45’s; noting that 60’s Detroit vinyl it has become increasingly difficult to acquire in anything above scratchy and worn.

This 45 is a strong Mint mint with X on label. A rare disc in even rarer not pass by.
