Pauline Chivers – Tough Stuff

Henry Food - I Love You, And Need You

Sometimes there’s a track that you hear and it instantly connects with you  – well today’s selection is a perfect example of that. I’ve mentioned before that I sometimes have difficulty trying to figure out which records sell for big money and why others are cheap and overlooked. Is this a case of collectors going for “big” tunes? I don’t know, but what I do know is, if you are into collecting funk & soul records, this song is a must own in my opinion (especially when you can pick one up for somewhere in the region of £15!!)

This fits in well with plenty of the other “sister funk” tracks I’ve brought you over the years with great vocals, uptempo, piano break and an absolute killer horn intro – oh and the backing vocals aren’t bad either! What’s particularly surprising about this piece of wax is just how short it is – it clocks in and around the 1min 30secs mark. Short and sweet indeed!

It’s been a while since I’ve had a guest contributor select a track for me and that’s something I hope to put right over the next couple of weeks (think of it as an early Christmas present).
