When it comes to "Crazy About Crossover" I'm certainly "nuts" for this 1973 William Bollinger rarity, no matter which side I drop the arm on..

But you'd expect something special when William Bollingeris takin' part, he his one of those under-recorded Soul artists who demand respect as every 45's his has participated in is saturated in SOUL!
Gaining him a huge appreciation-society from Europe to Japan and back again, this man's vocal style is adored.

The A-side floats along on a wave of guitar riffs and subtly brushed drum rhythms cradling a most-soulful plea. This voice requires no group backing furnishings, a rich stand-alone vocal at ease with itself. His beseeching stance, convincing pleads for his lady to stand by him. What lady wouldn't? if asked by this purveyor of pure Soul.

The flipside drops a pace, allowing Mr. Bollinger to express himself as a man in love. This time a celestial girl-group pours a sweet chorus on this delicacy; Decorated by with truly magnificent guitar solo..

Two memorable slabs of rare independent Soul from an artist, who sadly never had enough of his work committed to vinyl
