Jesse Davis: Never Could Have Made It/Is This Love (Essence)

I felt in love with Jesse's music since the very first time I heard his Northern Soul anthem "Gonna Hang On In There Girl". This album was recorded in the beautiful city of San Diego and shows his marvellous voice on top form.
Never Could Have Made It
Is This Love

Beres Hammond: Don't Wait Too Long/Somebody Lied (Water Lily)

This is Beres Hammond's debut LP and is influenced by the music he grew up with. He is still in the business and has just issued a new double album.
Don't Wait Too Long
Somebody Lied

Sssence: What Love Has Joined Together/If You Want Me (Lance)

Obscure double sider from the Windy City, taken form an album that apparently was never released.

If You Want Me

The Florida Spiritualaires: I Remember When (Ernie's Record Parade)

Great mid-seventies black gospel on a subsidiary of Nashboro Records. The group was organized by Reverend Fleming in the 60s.

Darrow Fletcher: It's No Mistake (Crossover)

A tasty midpace number issued by Ray Charles' famed label. If you like this do not miss the recent Kent CD "Crossover Records 1975-79 LA Soul Sessions" telling the whole story behind Darrow's Los Angeles years.
