HR 1525 OTIS CLAY - I Lost Someone (alternate unreleased take) / Nothing To Look Forward To / I Lost Someone. (yep, 3 tracks for the usual price)
The iconic Otis Clay - here with 3 wonderful One-Derful masters from 1966 Chicago. The original plan was to issue 'Nothing To Look Forward To' ( unreleased until the Japanese P-Vine LP in 1979) with 'I Lost Someone' (unreleased until the P-Vine LP in 1990). When supplying the masters, an alternate take of 'I Lost Someone' came to light; unable to choose, we decided the right thing to do was to include both versions. Three truly great mid 60s midpace dance tracks.

HR 1526 BRENDA VARNER - Don't Give Up On Me / Let Me Be A Woman
Brenda was married to Don Varner at the time he was recording down in Sheffield, Alabama at Quinvy / Broadway Studios - although she also had 45s released under the name Brenda Duff - these 2 tracks are all that is in the can from that early 70s Quinvy era. Unreleased until the Charly 1989 LP brought them to light, they have never had a 45 release. The 'A' side here is a very tasteful midpace dancer which has gained sporadic plays over the years; the flip here is classic Southern deepsoul from the mighty Muscle Shoals writing talents of George Soule & Terry Woodford.
