Lifelong fan of all types of music, but particularly Soul, Funk, and Jazz.

I've got to a point in my life where I will be unloading my entire collection, after roughly 50 years...........

Marvin Gaye

A: Abraham, Martin And John
B: How Can I Forget

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.....

The Flamin' Groovies

A: Shake Some Action
B: Teenage Confidential
....now that's, I say that's the version I know the best, although the mix on the posting by solarbrother sounds a bit thin, maybe the mono version is ballsier.......

Do I hear some cow bell in there as well....?
