I would imagine it came out around the same time as "My favourite fantasy", which also got a UK issue. Oh yes you can see that the album is the source for this track on the label. I'll have to wait till tonight to play it though. bloody work!

Sounds good Ken, is that 1978 on the label? Can't make it out from the scan, but if it is then it shuold get a mention in "Soul Harmony" book and having just checked it doesn't. This could mean it's a rare one, or maybe it didn't get released.

Never heard it before, and don't know nothing about it........er not much help then sorry :tomato2:

Cheers Paco

Cheers Paul,reason i ask,somebody asked for the album for 1 trakc,i`m sure this is the trakc,but cant find me LP at the mo`,sure i give the LPa go,i remember one stand out tune,hope its this :(

Yes it is! It's a shame that Van is only remembered for THE HUSTLE, especially here in the states!

Quite interested in his 60s stuff also!

I'm pretty sure I have an issue of this at home (Memory blank here) - (Speakers not working at mo' at work so can't tell if its same one )

If it is - I got one from Rod Dearlove at Voices a couple of months ago for I think about £8-£10. Absolutley raved over and a great 45.

Hi Ken/All

Sorry for late reply - Have been away from the racks! Yes I do have an issue - The black / multi colour MCA. B Side is 'Two Points ' and taken from the My Favourite Fantasy LP. I know Rod at Voices had copies so anyone wanting one should try contacting him. Price wise I think I paid about a tenner but IMO a crackin uplifting track which should garner a few plays. I'll scan my copy and post up later.
