cool video

You need to subscribe to this guy's YouTube channel. Ian Whittington. All very cool videos with sublime crossover tracks (probably wrong description, but that's more or less where I'd reference it talking to people) . Really worth a delve into his archive if you've not seen his other uploads; various socially conscious style retro footage, plenty of West coast low rider scene stuff including lots of tattooed and face-painted 'Day of The Dead' style female studies.

Although I hesitate to say, it (as the visuals are fairly in-your-face and it's not even OVO) I just love the verve displayed in his video for Joe 'Jama' Perales  "My Life" 2001 version:

I had the immense privelige of playing this superb track for many months, as an exclusive for Kent, a few years ago.

And I still carry it everywhere and play it in every set I can (played it at Soul Essence, Great Yarmouth Weekender, t'other weekend and it went down a bomb at Stoke Allnighter last year too!).

Will make a great 45 but meanwhile DJ's should keep it plugged on whatever legal format you can play it on!

And if that means CD, so be it!

It's all about the music.

Cheers,

:thumbsup:

It's in the next batch now, so not until late summer depending on the pressing plant. It's a boot, not a so-called boot; if it was legit it would have credits, not even the songwriters get paid on that one.

Ady, thanks for the update 

The reason I stated so called boot is that its been pressed prior to any other official release, so where did they boot from ?

- btw does someone actually have the rights to this track in any shape or form ?

If its on a Kent cd then obviously Kent have the rights to it. 

Well Yes its on a Kent CD from 2012? (Crossover Soul 1975-79 LA Sessions) however was the so called boot pressed before that or booted from the CD ??

That was my question to Ady as Ace are releasing it on '45 this year afaik - it would be so good Ady,  if you could issue with "Its no mistake" on the flip please.... :-)

Yes from the Kent CD, licensed from the Ray Charles Estate, so his family get's the royalties as does Darrow and the songwriters. We've licensed the previously unissued tracks for Europe, they were not available until the Kent CD which you should get as there are a lot of great issued and unissued tracks from this period of Darrow's career

The flip is another unissued masterpiece from the CD 'How Can You Live Without Love' which you'd have to buy the Kent 45 for to get it on vinyl anyway.

Thanks everyone and Cheers to Ady for the upcoming release, Kirk from San Francisco
