Chosen Few: Lift This Hurt/You Been Unfair (Bandit)

This is the re-recording of Elvin Spencer's "Lift This Hurt", originally issued by Winner in 1970 and one year later by Twinight, thanks to Syl Johnson who convinced the label to purchase his contract. This version is faster and more danceable while the flip is a fine ballad. Needless to say Elvin was Chosen Few's bandleader. If you want to investigate further Bandit Records' treasures, Numerogroup has published a great compilation dedicated to Arrow Brown's label (http://www.numerogroup.com/).
