Lend A Hand



Things are still a bit hectic with work and other things at the moment but I think that the longer I leave it before I start posting again the harder it will be so here goes. I have been meaning to post today's track for ages, it is a belter and one of the original "crossover" tunes that can be classed as northern or modern but which I think should just be called soul.

Lend A Hand when it first appeared was played from Bobby Hutton's 1973 album, Piece Of The Action. It then appeared on a 7" in 1978 and was released on Goldmine in 1996. Bobby Hutton, hails from Chicago and should not be confused by the man of the same name from Oakland, California who was a founding member of the Black Panthers.

I was beginning to think you'd given up. Thankfully I was wrong there.

Bentornato. You've been missed.

What a song! You can really tell Hutton had a thing for Jackie Wilson on this one. As you can see, life without Drew didn't sit very well with our pals. Count me in as a fan that was very happy to wake up this morning and see this post. These day-to-day bothers like earning a living can really cramp one's style, eh? Hang in there.
