I'm loaded with the cold and feeling sorry for myself. Still my performance review has been completed, don't need to try and get enthusiastic about that for another six months.
One thing that continually amazes me about northern soul music, is the sheer quality of the tracks that in general were largely ignored by the record buying public both here and in the States in the sixties and seventies. Was it due to the sheer volume of music produced that so many brilliant songs never got the airing and therefore were never heard of by the population. Or was it due to the ineptitude of the record pluggers and lack of promotional budgets for a lot of these small labels?
Neither of these situations can surely apply to You're Gonna Love My Baby as it was released on Motown in 1965 and must have had the backing of the label owner as he produced it. But bomb it did.
