Press release out....



THIS KIND OF LOVE (Long Version)/ l'VE GOT TO BE FREE THE LONG VERSION of club soul favourite 'This Kind Of Love' by Special Delivery is scheduled for release on Shotgun Records. The 7" single will be available from 1 October 2021. 
Special Delivery evolved from Act 1 who recorded for Spring Records from 1973 under the direction of group member Raeford Gerald, a prolific writer-producer. Terry Huff became lead singer in 1975 and they joined Mainstream Records where their records were credited to variations of 'Terry Huff & Special Delivery'. 

When Huff left, the remaining members Chester Fortune, George Parker, Veronica Martin and Reginald Ross recorded in Washington, D.C. and released three singles and a self-titled LP on independent label Shield Records with national distribution via TK Productions. 
Their third Shield single, issued in 1978, was an edit of 'This Kind Of Love' which, sadly, cut out the album version's spoken section by Chester Fortune and Veronica Martin. It wasn't released in the UK where the song became a minor 1985 pop hit for Phil Fearon & Galaxy. 

Shotgun Records and sister label One World Records are distributed by Selrec International. Further information is available from Paul Mooney and Paul Conroy. Radio plugging is handled by Steve Ripley.
