Fantastic and extremely scarce Los Angeles creation from the desk of the renowned Miles Grayson and the pen of Bobby "Got To Get You Back" Mandolf.

As they open proceedings with the Melrose Avenue born "The Dip", then Bobby Mandolf and his teammates run the whole gamut of 60's California dance-crazes. On a wave of glorious male harmonies, played out against a backdrop of crashing cymbals, wailing horns. Miles Grayson keyboard rhythms, bring them to the break then again the powerful backing is peppering with searing vocal notes of Dip, Dip, Dip, Dip, Dip Jerk, Jerk, Jerk, Jerk. Great song, even greater vocal group who evaporated into thin air straight after this 45 was pressed.

Maybe Bobby & Miles just put the gathering together for a day session, but what a session it was. These guys are tight, high accomplished vocal group harmonizers, underlined when you hear the equally impressive flipside. Booming low-blown horn, tinkling Grayson piano, than a haunting lead vocal sets out alone, soon to merge with that lush harmony choruses from these anonymous highly honed voices..

Which side do I prefer? That's a hard one...

At an allniter "I Ain't Got Time" sounds totally awesome, loud and banging, whilst at a more discerning gathering of soul scholars or Sunday Chill crowd "Love In My Heart" will certainly have a those turntable voyeurs peeping over the decks... just distilled NS class!

Again two absolutely superb tunes, on one rarely seen disc, drenched in Miles Grayson influences.

Condition Report

Encircled a-side title, otherwise two perfect labels, both sides of the (high quality) vinyl reveal some soft hairlines none of which react on the stylus, in fact both sides play beautifully clean.
