Backing track sounds like Tonny Hymes - "Time ain't..."

Nice track though! Is it for sale? laugh.gif

Billy :yes:

No it's not mine, it's an acetate that a friend of mine bought off Pat Brady about 12 years ago, he's still got it and won't sell it. Think he paid about 100 quid for it!

Pete - it sounds alot like the Del Royals version on Mercury (see scan) which came out Oct 1969. Havent got time to compare the two maybe its an unreleased different mix of the DR's?

cheers,

It certainly is very much like the Del Royals - pretty sure it's different though

I have that one my current playlists and on the last Hip City tape. It is by the Del Royales on Mercury. Awesome tune indeed :yes:

Only ever seen double sided WDJ's of this - anybody got a red issue and whats the flip like? Believe the Del Royals only had 2 releases on Mercury. Great vocals indeed from Willie Johnson I suspect (he's the featured singer named on the credits).

Definately the Del-Royals version. Is Lou Rawls the more obvious version?

Always reminds me of Colour Me Father, the sentiment of the song, not the actual tune
