The Lamp Sisters

A: A Woman With The Blues
B: I Thought It Was All Over
Think this was lst release on UK Sue label,before brief 80s revival.Great wailing midtempo femme release A side,and good ballad on flip.Don't know if it ever got played in Northern soul circles.Apparently Blues & Soul's John Abbey thought it was worth a release here.
Aside seems commercial enough to have had play,but as Tony Blackburn was nations arbiter of taste ,what chance did it have.
Shame Ace/Kent or anyone else never put it on CD,
Think they release about 4/5 singles on US Duke label

Gary Wright And Wonderwheel

A: I Know
B: Tonight It's Right
A side brilliant,pity they never made album(or is it locked in vaults)B side initially sounds quite cringeworthy ballad,but creeps up on you.And I cannot help thinking someone covered B side

Can't understand why this didn't get radio play.Suppose one look at Blue Horizon label put paid to that but would have thought Peel would have picked up.Raw Ramshackle Stomping Rythm & Blues at its best.Well worth tracking down

A: Tonopah
B: Anytime
Wow 2 of us have heard this.Great shame this and other hard to find Island rock 45s have not been compiled on CD.
One comment I heard was Tonopah sounded like a cross between Elvis 'Old Shep' and Procul Harum 'Whiter shade of pale
Definitely deserved wider audience!
