You Really Got A Hold On Me/Society

7-inch (Item 618737) Cultures Of Soul, 1978 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

7-inch, Vinyl record

5.00 3

Tight guitars riff away beautifully on this one – picking up an nice groove right from the start, and giving the vocals of Emanuel Taylor an infectiously funky sound all the way through! Taylor dips and turns with the cut nicely – soaring one minute, snapping with the beat the next – and the cut's got a great blend of sweetness and clubby rhythms! "Society" has a wicked drum break at the start – a bit fast, but picked up by a bassline too – and rolled together in a horn-heavy groove that's made even better by Emanuel's vocals!

Hip, 2013. New Copy
Not the "Costanza" you might know from Seinfeld, but a tight funky number from the excellent Georgia Soul Council! The tune's got fast drums mixed with lots of Hammond riffing and tight horns – and the whole group shouts a catchy vocal bit at a few key spots. "Hip Shot" ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Numero, Early 80s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
