CHUCK WOOD - SEVEN DAYS TOO LONG b/w SOUL SHING-A-LING
It always amazes me when I go to do the daily entry on a record that is highly revered in certain circles (in this case, this tracks has been a northern soul fave since the early '70's) where there is basically no information on the artist (and for that matter, the producers and writers of the track). Perhaps it's a one off, but the name Chuck Wood turns up on other records (who knows if it's the same person? From what I understand, those other ones are pretty lousy).
THIS record, has it all; a classic stomper on the a side, and a gritty, down home funky r&b track on the b-side. Pure record heaven! Also note the price tag on the label; some lucky cuss got this record for fifteen cents once! Oh, to be able to go back to the early 70's record remainder bins when nobody but the english were buying 60's soul records.
