Here's a record that will sort out the progressive DJs, the ones with a clear ear for a possible emerging monster; from the NS DJ's who like to play and buy tried & tested, already broken by pioneering DJ's way before them. The obvious potential for this obscure Wisconsin D.I.Y. vocal group dancer has yet to be tapped into.

Listen to this beauty from Milwaukee, then try and tell me this session doesn't have everything it takes to go huge!

A beseeching Otto vocal slips seamlessly into an attention seeking cocktail of swirling Hammond, pounding bass guitar... preparing fertile ground for a team of shrill girls cradle his pleading voice with rich harmony. The relentless marriage of guitar and keyboard drives the convincing dance rhythm, the girls demand “Come On Baby - I Love You” Otto’s reaching voice underlines his need, the background vocals hammering home his determination to make it with his girl...

Perhaps the flipside is a even superior tune, a heavenly Lowrider experience; also yet to emerge from under its obscurity. Every note finely delivered as any big-ticket San Antonio rarity you care to mention. The quality is right up there, along side the harmony Soul grails; ready and waiting to cause a sensation to those who have not encountered its premier qualities before.

Both sides are spectacular examples of their genres, seriously rare... just begging for a visionary DJ to whack it out of the park...

Condition Report

Two beautifully clean labels, full gloss vinyl, revealing only minuscule sleeve storage hairline or two under light. Both sides play flawless.
