Release blurb
Having anthologized his ’60s songbook with 1976’s overdue long-player Positive-Negative, Grand Rapids, Michigan's Tommy McGee was eager to place something more modern into the marketplace. Brass at Brunswick and MCA failed to hear a hit in McGee's sultry-yet-assured delivery of “Now That I Have You.” Unable to find a home for the romantic anthem, McGee issued his 2-step masterpiece on his own TMG Records in 1981. McGee would revisit the composition later in the decade, dressing the tune with drum machines and synthesizers for a run of 12” singles. However, this 45-only version from 1976 captures the progressive soul stepper at its most organic.

this original version is not 45-only, it was also on the mentioned 80s 12" as well as the original 7. One of my favourite 45's of all time, good release,
