WILBERT HARRISON - NEAR TO YOU


Known mostly for his big hits ("Kansas City", 1959 & "Let's Work Together", 1969), Wilbert Harrison waxed this incredible side during a period that may have been hitless but certainly was not fruitless. This incredible song and performance should have been a massive hit. It's one of those songs that's gonna move people as long as humans have ears and hearts.

from 1963...

Derek - not a 45, but there's also a different & supercool version on the 1971 'Shoot You Full of Love' lp!
