Great stuff - have listened to that hundreds of times but never seen them singing it

Remember Ann Nesby at one of the early Prestatyns, dynamite

Nice one Chris, its definately a joy to put faces to voices like that. They certainly make beautiful music and theres a few more of theirs to put up. I'll continue with the full version of this soul empowering masterpiece.

A long thread indeed.

A guy called Robbie Vincent used to play this track, back in the day, on his Sunday night radio show, and I just thought what a great great tune to have on whilst doing a road trip.

This one. There was a limited 12" apparently, at the time (1979) but sort of impossible to get. They did an absolutely immaculate repress for record shop day this year. Also limited but a few still about. Get on it -awesome!

And of course who can forget this absolute belter of a song that opens up a great conversation about where you would like to be kissed...

Love that - need to revive the house thread, no posts on there for ages

Can't find the house thread Chris, shame these must be difficult to find for new visitors, but this is what its all about, its a treasure trove on here for anyone searching for music. Another one from Roy Ayers that takes me straight back. Just seen Jazz Funk nite in St Helens 3rd Aug, excellent! Time to get down.

You are right, these threads are hard to find for new visitors

Look forward to some of your house posts - some brilliant stuff on there, will keep you busy for a while!

His live performances of this are even more entertaining ... and I can remember Mr Vincent playing this rather a lot back in his heyday. The female vocalist is the much underrated Miki Howard, who pops up on Wayne Henderson's 1979 "Emphasized" LP, from which came "Dancing love affair" featured much earlier in this thread, so here's something else appropriate for this thread from Big Daddy himself with Miki on backing vocals:
