From 1964 on Sam Cooke's SAR label. Sam wrote this one too and you can hear a little melodic similarity to his song "Another Saturday Night." The Valentinos featured future soul star Bobby Womack, who controversially married Sam's widow after his bizarre and untimely death. This is the flip of "It's All Over Now" which the Rolling Stones covered a bit later... *edit - By the way, that skipping thing, where the beat slips? It's not the 45 skipping and it's not a digital glitch. I'm not sure what is going on there. If anyone else has a copy of this song, either on cd or vinyl, I'd be curious to know if this is a bad edit on the original master, or what?
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.
