News in all about Outta Sites latest 45 soul releases, here's the blurb...
SUPER BAD SOUL - THREE STUNNING NEW 45s - AVAILABLE TO ORDER TODAY
OSV188 Lee Moses
A. Lee Moses - Bag Girl (Part 1)
B. Lee Moses - Bad Girl (Part 2)
LEE MOSES is a cult figure amongst rare funk and deep soul collectors with his lone album, Time And Place, the holy grail of his brief but majestic recording legacy. Despite working with the likes of Eddie Billups, King Hannibal, Freddie Terrell, Barbara Hall and Gladys Knight & The Pips, he remains obscure and yet revered. He recorded just eight singles over a period of eight years and scratched a living playing the bars and R&B clubs in Atlanta. “Bad Girl” is a funk/soul masterpiece that is heavily in demand around the world as the three million views on YouTube lays testament. It was recorded in New York in 1967 and is produced by the legendary Johnny Brantley who captures the very soul of Moses in every tortured second of this 5-minute opus that stretches over both sides of the 45.
OSV187 Candy & The Kisses
A. Candy & The Kisses - Are you Trying Too Get Rid Of Me Baby
B. Val Simpson - Mr Creator
CANDY & THE KISSES burst onto the Northern Soul scene with their first single, and all-time classic, “The 81” co-written and produced by the late, great, Jerry Ross. A number of their songs have found favour over the years including “Out On The Streets Again” and the rare promo B-side “Tonight’s The Night”, and now our OVO… “Are You Trying To Get Rid Of Me Baby”. This storming unreleased dancer first came to our attention courtesy of Kent Records and their 1986 Magic Touch album. The song was originally known by the Crystals on U.A. which has grown in popularity and value in recent times.
VALERIE SIMPSON is better known as one half of music bis. royalty Ashford & Simpson who need little introduction. She co-wrote our topside and “Mr Creator” which she demos here to great effect. The song was taken up by The Apollas on Warner Bros. and went on to become a Northern Soul all-time classic.
OSV189 Betty Moorer
A. Betty Moorer - Speed Up
B. Betty Moorer - It's My Thing
BETTY MOORER, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, first came to prominence as one of the founding members of the group the Esquires alongside her brothers Gilbert and Alvis. After almost 10-years with the group Betty left, circa 1965, and recorded one 45 for Wand Records which was released in April 1969. It was to be her parting gift to the recording industry and what a legacy! The top side, “Speed Up”, was also recorded by The Impalas later that year but it is Betty’s original and definitive version that captured the hearts and souls of the UK Northern Soul fans at the time and by the mid-Seventies had become an anthem. The B-side is no slouch either as Betty funks it up with a killer version of the Isley Brothers “It’s Your Thing”.
