Not for the first time, a standout song has flirted with spiraling into unstoppable demand, but has just sat on the peripheral of Rare Soul fame for decades. Awaiting the right DJ to light the touchpaper and whoosh... everybody wants a copy. As a part time mess-around DJ, I should feel rather ashamed not to have championed this exquisite tune, seeing as, every working day I was less than 10 feet from a copy. But that was 3 years ago, any spare copy has long gone, and now demand is at its peak. Not surprising really as both sides are truly graceful rare soul experiences.

The Scott Brothers, Howard and Walter together with Ira Gates honed an impressive triangle of ideas, styles and tunes during the late 60's whilst working under George Leaner's Toddin' Town banner. A place where they could bounce off and warm themselves on the exuberance of Alvin Cash, James "Bull" Parks etc. Today bring all their experience to the table joining Johnny Cameron to tightly tailor group Soul excellence.

It seems almost like a weekly blog, we are singing the praises of Johnny Cameron's arranging skills, both sides shimmer with his unrestrained approach to a pleading production; crafting two delicious helpings of distilled vocal-group Chicago male vocal-group harmony floaters. But the real star of the show is the young beseeching lead voice, so convincing in his need for love.

The a-side does it dance style, the flipside is an equally calculated floater of immense charm... Which side I prefer, I keep changing my mind... both are equally sublime.. so click the prepared soundfile; you decide which side knocks you over the hardest... as the soaring in despair voice pulls you into his heartfelt predicament. His pain is palpable..

BRILLIANT which ever side you drop the arm on.
