Bobby Powell I'm Gonna Leave You Whit 717 - Late Sixties
Audio File Deleted
Don't know much about Baton Rouge Soul singer Bobby Powell or the tiny Whit label, but damn, this sure sounds good! The Condition made this one cheap, but you definitely get the idea. Not sure of the date either... late sixties I presume. Jackie Johnson shares the vocals and gets a writing credit, along with producer/label owner Lionel Whitfield.
This is simply a blog where I post interesting 45s that I come across. I'm not an expert on records or music history and I'm fairly lazy, so don't expect a lot of exhaustive background or research. Comments are highly encouaged...
Most of the music files presented here come from my personal 45 collection and are posted for purposes of musical enlightenment only. These are mostly obscure songs, over 40 years old, that may not have been reissued on CD. The intention is to raise awareness of underappreciated artists/songs. If you like what you hear, seek these artists out on CD or get out there and find some of this old vinyl for yourself... If you are the copyright holder and wish any files to be removed, I will do so immediately upon request.
