The Moods [Philadelphia]

A: Rainmaker
B: Lady Rain
There may be an early Daryl Hall/Philadelphia connection with the Lady Rain track as he and Oates would use the verse for their same titled track on the Abandoned Luncheonette album of 73. That track was authored by H&O on the album, and a track by Hall (a version of Bunny Sigler's Don't Make Me Wait) along with the both sides of the Moods 45 featured here, can be found on the I-Tunes Download album "That Philly Sound Presents the best of Northern Soul Vol.2"

Thank You Davie. I seem to have led myself down a dark alley and you’ve just enlightened me to a bright exit. Right, off to find “Scraps”.

A: Ain't It All Right
B: Only You
Fantastic piece of R & R, only available on 45, unless anyone knows better. It is not the same version as appears on their "tap Dancing Bats " Album. First heard this featured on a Radio London Show hosted by Robbie Vincent before his total conversion to soul & Jazz. He has a great ear for music and featured many unknown tracks in his early years, even something like this R&R pastiche.

Butch Leak

A: You're Like Magic
B: Let's Take A Chance
Butch Leake was a former member of the Drifters group that arrived in Britain in the early seventies and signed to Bell after their popularity stateside wained and their contract with Atlantic lapsed. He worked with them until 1975. The co-writer of both tracks (Ritchie Pitts) is also an emigree from America who started with the group the Velours and when promised work in the UK in the late sixties made the hop across the pond only to find they were to perform the night clubs of GB as The Fantastic Temptations, covering the Motown groups material. When this was stopped following court action, they reverted to The Fantastics and also enjoyed success at Bell records UK (Something Old, Something New). Ritchie also had a solo single version of General Johnson's "Every Couple's Not A Pair" on the UK Contempo label.
