A sock-soul set of material from Larry Williams
Watson – and one that really updates their older groove for the Northern Soul generation! The album's pretty amazing – hardly anything you might expect from any of Williams
' earlier work, and drenched in the charms that Johnny
Watson discovered in the 60s, and expanded in the 70s – but set to rhythms that are as hard-grooving from a soul perspective as any of the best work on the Okeh label at the time! Arrangements are by Arthur Wright and Melvin Jernigan, who hit a very natural vibe that lets Larry and Johnny
trade lines back and forth wonderfully – in a very personal, almost spontaneous way that's very different than better-known male soul duos of the 60s – and the record is a key lost link in Watson's career, one that really lets you hear him tightening things up before his superstar years of the 70s. Titles include the killer classic "Two For The Price Of One" – plus "Too Late", "Aint' Gonna Move", "Keep On Lovin' You", "Takin No Chances", "A Quitter Never Wins", and "I'd Rather Fight Than Switch". Features great bonus tracks too – including the Johnny
Larry single cuts "Nobody" and "Find Yourself Someone To Love" – and cuts from Watson's other Okeh albums that include "Fever", "Coke", "Unchain My Heart", "Comin Home Baby", "Skate Key", "Summertime", "Makin Whoopee", and "Ain't Misbehavin".
