New 45 - Soul Direction - Norman Feels - Don't (alt) / More Love - Out May 2022 magazine cover

Latest word from Soul Direction, a new release featuring 2 x previous unreleased tracks...

Soul Direction are pleased to announce the next release in the catalogue.

SD-009 - Norman Feels - "Don't"- (Original Edit)/ "More Love" - (Soul Direction)

Scheduled Release Date - May 2022


Little is known about Norman Feels (AKA Norman Solomon) other than he was an underground soul singer in the first half of the 1970s. Norman Feels released two albums on Just Sunshine Records and seemingly then disappeared back into obscurity but leaving us with some wonderful music.

In 1973 he released a self-Titled album and in 1974 the album entitled "Where or When" However, these two tracks were recorded a year earlier in 1972, we believe in Detroit but mastered at Sterling sound studios in New York but cannot be 100% sure.
This might explain the fact that "Don't" is a different mix to the later LP and "More Love" never saw a release.

"Don't" is a different and much punchier version of the Album track and could have presumably been recorded as a possible 45 release for another label but was shelved.

The B side "More Love" as far as we can tell never saw the light of day other than these acetates that were purchased via a sound engineer from the studios much later.

Over the years the songs from his albums have been sampled by famous acts such as Ghostface Killah, to Nas and Kanye West.

Unfortunately there will be a slight delay in the despatch of the Norman Feels Release. The records are pressed and ready but unfortunately the picture sleeve has had to be reprinted due to a fault. I have been "Assured" they will be ready by the 20th May and all being well the records will go out to you the Monday after. This was something completely out of our control and appreciate your patience but I believe in the end it will be worth the slight wait. There are delays in raw materials across the Manufacturing sectors and print is one that has suffered along with others. If anything changes I will keep you informed but hopefully this the last delay.

Many Thanks

Alan @ Soul Direction.
