I don't know if this has been posted up before, but some nice background on what was one of the biggest tunes at one time provided by an obscure north west artist.

Cheers Andy.  Great information.  So they originally pressed 250 copies,  remember when it first got played out and about,  there was supposedly 4 copies.  Don't know how many actually turned up.  Love both sides.

footsteps in history etc

she sang at Jimi Hendrix's funeral

Pastor Patrinell Staten Wright tells the story of how she came to sing at Jimi Hendrix's funeral on October 1, 1970 at Dunlop Baptist Church (Seattle, WA). This scene (available as a bonus on the DVD) is taken from the feature-length documentary "Wheedle's Groove" which tells the story of Seattle's forgotten soul & funk scene of the 1960s and 1970s.

Priceless.

What a tune. It's got everything . Class, rarity, obscurity, and it stops and starts all over the place. Was it a Mecca play?

Up until a few years ago I'd only ever heard of the four sonics on sepia.

I don't know whether it was a Mecca play but I did hear that some copies are pressed incorrectly, labels correct but wrong tune playing (nightmare), Butch plays it

Found much later than the Mecca, would be in the 90s when found.

Pretty sure it's a different label - Four Sonics label is Detroit-based, with three releases in total.

Story I heard was it was Keb Darge found Patrinell Staten on a digging trip with John Manship, the deal being Keb got all the funk and John got all the soul. So... Keb had to hand it over! 😭

Yes, the Seattle label had nothing to do with Jack Ashford's Detroit label.  And Patrinell Staten was a Seattle resident.
