About the singer: Al Jackson by that time had been replaced by one John Washington.
Al Jackson, by the way, seems currently to be running a fly fishing school somewhere in Pembrokeshire. Isn't that interesting?
My humble apologies for not A/B'ing first before piping in. Now that I listen again maybe I was too hasty. I think they sound about the same and hedgehopperray's B-side (the side I was more interested in) doesn't have the noticeable pop that De-Click software could not fix. I had to manually take it out...too big. That poster was nice enough to send me the separate audio files.
I won't trust my memory next time. The A-Side is probably even a bit less distorted/cleaner sounding on yours! Thanks again. Should have made sure before posting!!!!
Apologies for the clips & comments about them now being in the wrong order, one wrongly checked box & instead of deleting one of my youtube videos the lot went, reinstating the most viewed ones but they do appear anew as most recent comments which makes things read a bit peculiar.
A BIG thanks for allowing us to get to finally hear this elusive single. It's excellent - a pleasant surprise which I enjoyed. Definitely gets one wondering who the singer is since it sure doesn't sound like Al Jackson from the Decca sides.
The songwriter of You've Been Cheatin' was Curtis Mayfield rather than two different people called Curtis & Mayfield as is suggested by the details printed on the label. The Impressions released the song in the UK in January 1966 on HMV POP 1498.
Although Love Was In My Eyes certainly plays ,As you can see from the B Side Scan the track is listed as Thats How its Gonna stay which became a Mockingbirds A side. Not sure if this mistake occured on all copies.
