JAMES SHORTER - READY FOR THE HEARTBREAK b/w MODERN DAY WOMAN



Hello from Oslo, Norway!

While this is a Detroit record through and through, the sound to my ears is much more Chicago-like in nature, in that it is much rawer with a more laid back groove than the Detroit sounds. "Ready For The Heartbreak" is a cool dancer with a most excellent guitar break (if this were Motown or any of the mini-Motown's, the break almost surely would have been baritone sax!). B side "Modern Day Woman" is a very very unique track with lyrics and subject matter that are quite different from just about anything else I can think of in the genre.

Excellent stuff that was released on the very obscure and highly collectible La Beat records (beautiful label, isn't it?)

from 1966...
