Please Stay

Please Stay by the Ivories was a monster northern track originally released on the local Chicago label Despenza and was then picked up by the Wand label in 1966 was pressed. released and then for some reason withdrawn making copies as impossible to find as Gideon Osbourne's conscience.  A price tag north of  $3000 dollars paid for one copy. Mine, sadly is the re-release from 2010 on the Soul 7 label.  You can understand why it could command such a price tag it is a storming tune, relentless beat aching strings, pleading vocals all the ingredients for a top dancer.
