Archie Bell And The Drells

A: Here I Go Again
B: A World Without Music
...oh, the ignominy of it all....

I heard the strains of dear Archie on a TV advert very recently singing a snippet of his 1972 UK hit, and then the sponsors details appeared Saga Holidays......for the over 50s.

Of course, anyone aged 8 or over who bought this single as a new release in 1972 would now be in their target audience.....

To help along, a matrix number visible on the labels as YTMG 734 A / YTMG 734 B marks this EMI pressing as a stereo release, as earlier (and some later) Tamla Motown UK mono issues were prefixed TMG.

Other labels in the EMI pressing and distribution UK empire also added a "Y" onto the main prefix letters to identify stereo releases, but no hard and fast rule applies.....

Señor Soul

.....seeing the mention of the earlier release by this group (WHIZ 611) had me "singing in my head" this title, so I checked it out, and sure enough, I remembered the melody, not heard by me for over 40 years, since an old buddy Mick Ryan played it for me in suburban West Norwood.......isn't the memory strange.
Of course, the group became WAR, after hooking up with Jerry Goldstein and Eric Burdon, but this sunny slice of latin Californian soul is unmistakably led vocally by Lonnie Jordan (also on Hammond B3), not that I knew that back in 1970 when I first heard the track.......

Three years later, and I was digging on "Deliver The Word"........

I imported this record from US to UK, as a 45, on US issue Unlimited Gold ‎– ZS8 1400, and sold a few..........I guess it was 1979.

Sweet soul, falsetto voiced, with big production values, the label was Barry Whites' own imprint, and on checking, it was also released in Spain, but on Epic, so may have had a UK issue on Epic as well.

I must have imported a few of his album as well from US, (Unlimited Gold ‎– JZ 35633, 1978) as I taped the track, but have no stock of 45 or album left.....
