Beautiful double sider from this obscure group who was actually out of Los Angeles, CA. The interest in the northern soul/dance side has driven the value of this 45 way up, and it is a very good one...but the ballad group vocals on the a-side are what really makes this record special to me. Undeniable. Someone should re-issue this asapolis.
Hey all, I've been given the honor to play some records alongside some real heavy hitters for a Red Bull all 45 showcase going down at the Cal Academy Of Sciences this Thursday. All 7" vinyl played in a soundclash style on 4 DJ set ups, with DJ's Shortkut, Platurn, John Doe and myself, plus special guests Jazzy Jay and Ted Shred! I have an extra couple spots on the guest list so the first person to comment on this post gets in free with a friend.
Here's a nice 70's uptempo girl group jam out of San Francisco, Ca. The tune was written and arranged by Lafayette "Papa" Thomas, who is also responsible for the wonderful "Cry For Joy" ballad as recorded by Papa And The Utopians on Poizon. I'll get to posting that sometime soon. Too bad these records were pressed on styrene as the highs tend to get a bit fuzzy at times, but it's difficult to deny the raw rhythm & sweet harmonies on these recordings.
