The Luther Ingram one is unissued and I grovelled for an acetate as payment for DJing the 100 club, but Ady gave me a boot instead. He booted my ass right up the stairs of the club. This is the best for sure, recognisable by its gravelly choral breaks. And easily by fave r'n'b tinged soul record.

The Wilson Pickett for ages I thought never came out on 45, but Gav Needham proved me wrong. I've got the LP. It's good. But it's not right. I'd be interested in hearing a third.

Yes, it's out on a portugese EP as well on the Tecla label. Here's my copy (the only one i know of actually). The other side has got two tracks by Otis Redding.

The Fred Bridges, Wilson Pickett and Luther Ingram tracks are all the same tune.

Written by Fred Bridges and Harrison Smith.

Here is the BMI info:

The Versatile label was active from 1960 to 1962.

Does anyone know what cat# the Fred Bridges 45 has got?

Wilson Pickett's version was recorded 1962 or 1963.

I've posted a scan of my fred bridges in the gallery.

I don't have any info on it but I do know someone had it on ebay for sale a few months back and it didn't reach the reserve. If I remember rightly he sells under the name sixties-soul.
