TONY AND TANDY - TWO CAN MAKE IT TOGETHER b/w BITTER WITH THE SWEET

Happy new year everybody- here's a double sider that oozes positivity and a fantastic message for 2013.

Tony (Head) was a member of England's freak beat specialists Les Fleur De Lys, and Tandy is South African born London transplant Sharon Tandy. Together, the two cut this record which beautifully carries on the Marvin Gaye/ Tammi Terrell duet style with an English flavour. Fleur De Lys backed Sharon on her greatest (in my opinion) track, "Hold On"- itself one of THE greatest UK singles of the late '60's. This far more soul-based single coincided nicely with the then developing "northern soul' scene in the UK and became a natural spin for the club DJ's.

Sadly, Tony Head died at his own hand within the last few years, and Sharon rarely performs in public these days. However, both sides of this record exude the type of hope that we need in this puzzling day and age. Two can make it together, and we ALL can make it together. Peace.
