A while back I posted a track by Gloria Taylor which I had stumbled across. I had already decided that I would investigate Ms Taylor's back catalogue before the comment from Darcy, however I would probably not have ventured into the 70s stuff,if it had not been for his comment but because of Darcy's impeccable taste this is where I headed first and after a search on the internet managed to acquire a download of a 12" single from 1973.
The first track on the a-side Deep Inside You is a smouldering, slow burning slab of deep soul and similarly track two is very good and these two tracks would make a single well worth seeking out. However the track on the flip side blew me away, a seven minute plus track which builds and builds and which when you get to the end you just have to put on again.
I have scoured the web and there isn't a copy of this 12" to be had anywhere which suggests that copies will be worth a few quid. So I really have to thank Darcy for adding another record to my burgeoning wants list that are likely to cost way above what L will find acceptable if a copy every comes up for sale.
