One More Chance
Well that was a quick two weeks. The pantry is now well stocked up on Foie Gras, Cassoulet and Confit du Canard. I think that I may have also done some serious damage to my suspension with the amount of wine that we brought back! But now it's back to the grind.
This Monday's bit of soul is from deep in the heart of Texas, Houston to be precise, at least that was wher etyhe Back Beat label was based but I know that some singles released on the label were recorded in Memphis, Chicago and also Detroit so this may have been produced elsewhere to. Shirley Lawson also known as Shirley Walker was the lead vocalist in the Curtis Mayfield produced group the Fascinations and therefore there is a good chance that One More Chance may have been recorded in the Windy City but I can't find anything to back that up. Irrespective of where the track was recorded this uptempo bit of soul released in 1966 makes the start of the new working week that little bit easier to bear. This track should not be confused with the song by Margie Joseph with the same title.
