Willie Tee's Holy Grail giving two of his finest recording on one seriously rare 45.

"I'm Having So Much Fun" is one of Willie's very rarest 45's, another classy mid-tempo Soulful strutter bolstered with a New Orleans brass section, rhythmic bongo, interacting with Willie's accomplished keyboard pulses lay down the landscape for Willie's instantly recognizable always uplifting vocal. His optimism again spilling over, has he broadcasts his joy of chasing his chosen girl. "I'm having so much fun - trying to win your love, baby". Taking pleasure frioom his challenge, his confidence is infectious leaving the listener believing he'll succeed. A fabulously exhilarating slice of rare Northern Soul crossover.

The flipside "First Taste Of Hurt" is the first press master # 1003 mix. Along with most everybody else this Willie Tee composition is his best, as lyrical genius pours from his lips. As a less joyous Willie tries to point out a life-lesson is about to hit his lady head-on. " Get Ready For You First Taste Of Hurt" not for a moment in a vindictive way, but with a measure of care Willie's saddened voice predicts something he really doesn't want to. This is Soul storytelling at it most convincing.

Two momentous pieces of real-deal New Orleans Northern Soul, on one hideously rare 45. Underlining again, just how dazzling this artist's work was.
