Tojo - Broken Hearted Lover

I have never seen a boot/pressing of it. Don’t think it has been done.

I have often wondered who Tojo is?  

Tec is a Washington DC label, that’s as far as I know!

Bet Roscoe Bowie Jr & his boys were the backing band ... the song's writer (John Franklin King) has 10 songs registered with BMI but strangely this ain't one of them (but the songs on both sides of JJ & G's TEC 45 are on there) .... PLUS OF COURSE Freddie Perren worked on the session.

Here's a scan of my copy that I bought from Max in about 1977/78 with the card sleeve with his writing on. It was in one of those box's that we had all picked over time and time again and had been left behind after he'd sold the bulk of his stuff.

He'd played it at the Cat's !

It still has a little tape residue around the run-out from where the label was covered up.

Ah when I said play it this weekend i meant in my record room 😀 👍

Social media is a good reason to NOT play it out, I'll choose what I play & I don't play follow the leader 😉 Mind you only played out once in last two years so not too much of a problem there 😃😃😃

I've always thought it sounded a bit like Carl Carlton when he sang "Competition....". Not saying it is him, but possibly  a young singer.
