My Sweet, Sweet Baby
I've got a busy week this week. Down to Leicester tomorrow for a couple of days, never been there before and know bugger all about the place apart from jug ears Lineker comes from there.
The Glories featured on the blog back in April and since then I have acquired a couple more of their singles. I am still on the hunt for a copy of their version of The Dark End Of The Street which for me blows James Carr's version out of the water. My Sweet, Sweet Baby is the stand out track of the ones which I have been able to find so far. According to Discogs the song only came out in 1968 as a promo on the Date label in the US, however my copy is on the UK Direction which I think most records released in the States were issued on in the UK as they were both part of the Columbia/CBS group. No matter what this record has another outstanding lead vocal from Frankie Gearing. I could listen to this kind of stuff all day.
