The fact this frustratingly elusive platter is a current spin for the dynamic duo Lynne and David Girdwood perhaps says more about it’s narcotic qualities than we eve could. But we would like to also validate their discerning pick..

Founder member of The Incredibles, Cal Waymon along with Charles Green craft this sulking-stroller from the Soul underworld of Los Angeles.

The beseeching vocal of Otis Jackson, is lovingly cradled by the attentive harmony of the "Compromisers" coating a mournful cruiser with silky sympathetic rippling's of distilled Soul. Lifting into totally addictive territory.

Atmospheric in the extreme, a session you will find yourself willing being dragged into Otis's overwhelming desires, for shades-down-love with his girl. Tentatively brilliant., a decidedly moving slab of proper Soul woven into a softened beating Charles Green arrangement.

Flip it over for a horn driven Northern Soul mi-tempo dancer, that few collectors have heard. I must admit myself, that I've always been so enamoured with "Turn Out The Light" I've never even listen to the equally enthralling reverse side. But I'm overboard for it now.

Making this spring of 1968 creation rather special indeed. Two sides of very elusive Los Angeles in flawless condition.
