New Release - Ronnie Walker - Can You Love A Poor Boy/Now I Cry - MD Records

New Release  - Ronnie Walker - Can You Love A Poor Boy/Now I Cry - MD Records magazine cover

MD records is the brainchild of Mark Anderson and myself, Des Parker to put out limited issues of previously unissued Soul gems. We really want the releases to speak for themselves, no gimmicks or nonsense - All priced at £10 each (Postage £2.50 first class recorded), all available through ourselves on this site ( I'm SOUL INC @SOUL INC  in case you didn't know)

Anyhow the first release is 

Ronnie Walker - Can You Love A Poor Boy/Now I Cry

The topside was recorded in 1973, when Ronnie was approached by WDAS DJ Harvey Holiday who had the idea to get Ronnie to record a version of "Can You Love A Poor Boy" which never saw a release. The flip "Now I Cry" was recorded on 17th October 1967 at the same session where "You're The One" and "Thanks To You", but was not released ………………………...until now!!

Thanks to Ronnie Walker and Dave Louis of Funkadelphia records for the help, anyhow let Ronnie introduce the tracks

Hi, was really pleased to be able to bring Ronnie’s sublime tracks to vinyl for the first time. Big thanks to Des for playing a big part in bringing these from an idea to a 45. 

Poor boy is a stunning 70s soul track that is destined for the 70s/modern rooms or some of the new 70s niters. Flip it over and theres great northern crossover dancer that just feels fresh and ready to play. Don’t take my word for hit the play button above! 

Thanjs to all of those who have already heard the quality and orders are on the way.
