Record information:

in 1968, in detroit, she recorded "time will pass you by", a song written by english-born songwriter and record producer john rhys eddins with nick zesses and dino fekaris. the record was released on the mala label under the name "tobi legend", but it was unsuccessful until it was picked up in the early 1970s by followers of the northern soul scene in the uk.


clip below...

it's the tobi legend track i have always loved most. it is somehow undiluted by the schmaltz of radcliffe's track, or the hey-ho-on-we-go of parrish's number, and instead is simply a song about seeing the preciousness of life, about trying to live our lives better and brighter...
