I think I have hit a record. This is my 14th hour at the computer and I believe my eyes are turning not only square but a demonic shade of red. To say I am short on wit and intellect at this point is putting it mildly. That said, this is a straight up jam. I love this song and I have to dedicate this one Black Shag as this happens to be the very first LP he "owned", having lifted it from his dad. I should have relinquished this posting right to him, but I am a brat and am posting it myself. I can safely say that if I could have someone sing the soundtrack to my summer, I would have to throw Randy Crawford in the mix (I am extremely partial to Etta James and I adore Patti LaBelle, but you know...variety, life, spice, etc).
I'm going to get a glass of champagne and listen to the sweet sax solo at the beginning with my eyes shut.

    Fantastic record

    but i think your recording is a bit pitched down, seems a tiny bit slow

    Smooth, smooth, that track. I too think it's pitched down a bit though, but I might be confusing it with a remix...

    Your blog is one of the best out there... One of my favorite records... but the recording is pitched down like! Keep up the good work though...

    Crap. I will look into this. I have an issue with my Logic set up and I didn't have time to listen back after I posted.
    I will fix this tonight and repost the track in its right speed.
    Thanks and keep reading!

    Okay, it's been reposted and is in it's intended state and speed.

    amazing, one of my first records too!

    picked it up when i was 14 in edinburgh after a recommendation from my mum. on the front cover, a previous owner has written in blue biro to their lover after buying it for them as a present. probably meaning that my copy isn't worth a great deal, but it makes it all the more special for me! definitely a fave, great post.
