HR 1517 JO JO BENSON - You're Losing Me / I'll Be The One
I remember during the days of Grapevine 2000 going to the studios in Houston with JA to try and work a deal for Huey's masters. There was a legal thing going on and we never got to it - so I'm particularly pleased to be able to eventually release this one on vinyl 45. Unreleased in the 70s, the 'A' side did get a CD release in 2015 and the 'B' side was out on a pretty hard-to-find Jetstream 45, which I recall had off-centre pressing problems on many copies.
Here they are now - totally remastered and sounding pretty darned good. I think most of us love Barbara Lynn's Atlantic original and Jo Jo's version sounds pretty top-notch too.
BERNARD DRAKE - I've Been Untrue / The Natural Thing.
For the last few years, one of the biggest Modern / Crossover sounds in the country.
It may well have been the same Texas trip around 15 years ago, we'd been to Houston and went on to the Austin show that I saw what is possibly the only copy I've ever seen of this 45. Ultra-rare and the few known copies are in the hands of Premier League DJ/collectors. - last one I saw through ebay was $4,000. Over 50 years old and sounds perfect for today.
