Ironically, the rarest record in our set has nothing to do with Luther Dixon at all. He didn’t write, arrange or produce it (credit must go to Richard “Popcorn” Wylie), but we are eternally grateful to him for releasing it in November 1967. It is, of course, Stanley Mitchell’s Detroit anthem “Get It Baby” championed by DJ Richard Searling in the early days of the legendary Wigan Casino. At the time of its release “Quit Twistin’ My Arm” was the plug-side and here we feature both songs, in the correct order, opening proceedings for both sides of our album.
Perhaps equally as rare is the seldom seen or heard “There Will Never Be Another You For Me” (D-106) by Kenny Ballard and his ‘fabulous’ Soul Brothers, side one, track seven. This sublime crossover gem was produced by George Tobin who was also responsible for Ballard’s earlier Roulette disc “I’m Losing You”. Pre order here.
