Alright! Sorry for the gap in posts... Back with a red hot side that has never been previously featured here.
Big Ella (Ervaerlla Tate) is a bit of a mystery figure; she cut 3 singles in the late 60's and qwuickly disappeared from the world of recorded music.
Being as Bobby Rush is listed as writer and producer, it's safe to say that this is a Chicago joint.
The best story though is in the grooves; 'Too Hot To Hold' is a scorching, intense slab of sister funk with an incredible vocal and a band that can easily give the JB's a good bit of competition.
