Beware boys you may become "giddy" listening to Roddie's charms...

Not only another Mike Lewis & Stuart Wiener girl-vocal masterpiece but also a 45 we have a duty to list and an review as may collectors have mistakenly paid rich-money for the counterfeit copy made to meet the demand of New York "Island Scene" for which this beauty was a monster play.

Shimmering with all the class Lewis & Wiener coated The Stoppers - Come Back Baby - you can hear exactly why this slice of gorgeousness got counterfeited. A stuningly narcotic groove.

So let's talk about what to identify whilst looking for the authentic original promo press and not counterfeit pressed in early part of 2000's.

Firstly this original June 1965 disc was pressed in styrene the counterfeit is pressed in harsh vinyl. The deadwax of the " He's So Easy To Love" side has an italic machine-stamped "Audio Matrix" moniker. Flip it over the "The La La Song" (also recorded by The Stoppers) has the unmistakable and unreplaceable raised X stamp. This is the authentic 1965 original.

So now listen to the unsung genius of Mike Lewis & Stuart Wiener with a New York songbird who's recording career only lasted two years and every one of her six singles she released are magnificent example of the east coast girl-sound. Carefully tailored to stir a man's emotions with her alluring, effortless, beckoning sirenesque voice.

Both sides of Red Bird RB 10-031 are proper girl delicacies to imperative soul-collection resident.
