Why Would You Blow It / Drifting


Released: 12th July 2010 | 2 track funk single
BACKGROUND Another northern rarity - out now on SOUL7!!! And as usual this SOUL7 reissue is FULLY LICENSED and restored from the ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES so it SOUNDS GREAT - unlike what you get from SHODDY BOOTLEGS! And in keeping with the spirit of collecting the pressing run is limited to ONLY 500 COPIES worldwide! THE STORY BEHIND THIS RECORDING: Another total quality double sider, this time recorded by Claude Huey and taken from the Fantasy-owned Galaxy label out of San Francisco. Why Would You Blow It has been in major demand for some time, not surprising given the easy, laid-back dancefloor appeal - it's a mid-tempo Northern mover sure to put a smile on the face of every dancer in the room. The flip side Drifting meanwhile, is held in equal esteem amongst aficionados of Heartbreak soul. A deep-soul ballad of the down and out, no-hope variety, the song contrasts beautifully with the breezy feel of ...Blow It. The original 45 is a pretty tough one to find, and even then there is major interest and competition, given the broad appeal of Why Would You Blow It, a song which would sound at home in a Northern, Crossover and perhaps even a Funk set. The price and demand is only going to rise, making this a very timely reissue indeed.
