Help Please - Tony Drake On Musicor

Recommended Posts

Not a Northern Soul query, but I know there are plenty of people on here with wide tastes and knowledge.

I play at a night with a pal of mine who is an old skool hip hop DJ. He spins that and I play funky soul, and the mix goes down very well. I started playing the Tony Drake version of Love Child it's getting pretty popular. My pal Kista asked if I could get him a copy and I didn't think it would be too difficult as I didn't think it was anything special really.

My searches, however have been fruitless. Is this 45 rarer than I thought, or is it just considered to be too bobbins to be worth listing?

All help appreciated.

Cheers,

Hmmm, no replies. Does this mean I'm asking a daft question unworthy of an answer? If so just tell me - I can take it!

Or does it mean that nobody knows anything about this record but you're all to ashamed to say so?

I went on Dave Rimmers site and checked Discographies and noticed the flip is unknown (It's "Can't You Hear Your Mama Calling") so maybe it is a bit obscure?

For God's sake don't make me go on the Funk45 forum. Those fellers are even more up their own bums than we are on here!

I know, pretend I'm a famous scene person and give us an opinion :shades:

Cheers,

Godz

oh by the way, I don't suppose it's worth asking about the Larry Carlton 45 on here either is it? thumbsup.gif

Cheers Andy,

I bet I'll have about as much luck as when I first found Tony Galla's website thumbsup.gif

seriously though, for people who soul music tastes are broader than just Northern it's a fantastic version and knocks spots of the Supremes. Tony really makes the song his own, with a sort of Southern feel to it.
