Hello,

Here's some info from the press release...

NEW RELEASE

SANDRA WRIGHT

I Come Running Back / Please Don't Say Goodbye

Shotgun SHOT 106

Release date: 31 January 2011

Distribution: SELREC

'I Come Running Back' is already a big favourite with soul fans but this is the first time it has been released as a single.

It was one of nine tracks Sandra recorded with producer David Johnson at Broadway Sound (formerly Quinvy) in Muscle Shoals in 1974. The masters were leased to Stax for an album project but only two singles were issued (on the Truth subsidiary which Stax formed to circumvent their distribution deal with CBS) before the company collapsed in bankruptcy in December 1975.

The Wounded Woman album was eventually released in the UK in 1989 and many DJs and soul fans picked up on 'I Come Running Back'. Its popularity has grown to such an extent that it now warrants release as a single.

SANDRA WRIGHT was born in Memphis on October 1st, 1948. Her first two singles were recorded in Muscle Shoals (Sandra's vocals were overdubbed in Nashville) and released on Decca's Coral subsidiary in 1968 and 1969. Two further 45s were issued on the Stax-owned Truth label, in 1974 and 1975, but her Wounded Woman LP was shelved until 1989. Sandra also released a 1986 single on T-Jaye Records in Nashville and fronted her own band. She passed away on January 11th, 2010.

Nice to see it on a single - great record.

Are you allowed to play it out or does that violate the OVO code - in which case you have to persevere with the album

- or can you play this if you have the album with you to prove you have the OV ?

Hi Paul

I really enjoy the info & background you add to your newly released records, i was just wondering if Sandra Wright was aware of your intended release before her passing.

Its a general question of all the releases, it interests me to know how the artists react & what feedback you get when a record that they may have long forgotten about gets new interest this side of the pond.

Hello Garv,

Sandra wouldn't have been aware. The last product she would have known about was the Soulscape CD issue of her album, combined with the James Govan album.

My deal for the Sandra Wright masters is with producer David Johnson, through him and Quin Ivy I also have the Quinvy / South Camp masters. I also control the publishing on 'I Come Running Back' and 'Please Don't Say Goodbye' through Millbrand Music, we also have the Quinvy catalogue.

Most records I issue on my own labels are songs owned or controlled by Millbrand, so the labels are really a vehicle to expose the songs as much as the masters. For example, I did the Sam Dees and Rozetta Johnson deals when Millbrand controlled the Moonsong / Act One catalogues. When I did the Bobby Hutton single on Selecta I got a sync deal to put the song in a movie (the same happened with 'Train To Tampa' by Sam Dees).

The artists are usually very pleased. Eddie Floyd was thrilled that 'Missing You was finally released, and just as he was about to visit the Uk again, and Rozetta was very excited about her Shotgun single and her Soulscape album. The last time I spoke with Rozetta she wasn't very well so I hope she's doing okay.

I haven't spoke with Sam Dees for a while so I don't actually know how he feels about his Shotgun 45, but I hope he's pleased.

Best wishes,

Paul

To be honest I'm not really a fan of previously available vinyl releases being re-issued, whatever the format, The LP is difficult to locate but not impossible, I prefer the concentration on the never before released tracks, the forgotten tapes, acetetes etc. Not a big deal, just a personal preference.

Hello Brett,

I respect your preference but I'd be a fool not to issue this when I already control the rights and there's an obvious demand for it to be available on a 7" single.

Apart from 7" being the preferred format, the single has superior sound quality and more volume - and DJs won't have to mess around trying to cue up the LP track anymore (you know how difficult that was for some of them!)

But it will be interesting to see how sales compare to previously unissued tracks such as Sam Dees, Eddie Floyd, Rozetta Johnson etc. It's too early to tell but so far it's looking good.

Best wishes,

Paul

Happens a lot though doesn't it, 45' different take from LP version, incidentally the other version of midnight affair is available on the Demon LP, and a German reissue, certain Stax didn't release it as a 45', other than the subsidiary Truth 45'. But I agree I prefer the LP version, and ive got the Truth single.

Will have to dig it out but thought it was a Stax yellow lookalike with a barcode. so the LP version is the same as the single but the LP is a 8ts issue.

Thanks.

I had the Truth copy but sold it on after not liking the version but Wounded Woman is a great tune. :lol:

Hello,

Wasn't it a German ZYX issue on Stax with John Garry Williams on the other side ?
