THE ANGLOS - INCENSE
This mysterious English soul record is rumored to feature Stevie Winwood on vocals, and has been a hotly debated issue for many years. Personally, I don't think it's him but instead somebody closely copying his vocal style. The "Miller" listed in the co-writer and co-producer role is none other than Jimmy Miller, who later went on to massive success with his work in the studio with the Rolling Stones.
Picking up on the Calypso style rhythms that were very popular during '63-'64, this record was a massive club smash in the UK and was issued quite a few times throughout the 60's to meet the demand. My personal copy (a first pressing) is in rough shape but still sounds great; oh if this little slab of vinyl could talk. Perhaps it was part of a mod club collection, or perhaps it was played at countless parties or simply a hip teen who loved listening to it while dancing around their bedroom!
