Donny Burks: I Was Satisfied/You Never Know What You Have (Until You Lose It) (Metromedia)

I first heard this record on Colin Dilnot's very informative blog and it was love at first sight. After purchasing the album "The Swinging Sound Of Soul" on Europa at last I succeeded in finding a copy on eBay for a very good price. Both sides are brilliant. "I Was Satisfied" starts off with a harmonica and then it builds up with a spine tingling crescendo while "You Never Know" is rhythmically more consistent and has a rather latin flavour.
I was satisfied
you never know what you have
