Additional Marks & Notes
If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially
if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record.
This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip,
cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
Very early single by Loleatta Holloway, and with much more of a raw southern soul feel than you'll find on other records. "Rainbow" is her version of the Gene Chandler classic, and although it's pretty faithful to the original, Loleatta gives it a nice new sound. 7-inch, Vinyl record

A great obscure one from Bobby! The cut's an extended groover with a hard blaring "sock boogaloo" soul feel to it – and we almost never see it at all! Great vocals all the way through, and stone cold production from James! 7-inch, Vinyl record

Two excellent cuts from this obscure Chicago soul singer! "Hurry Change" is a sweet soulful number, with Tenison's vocals raspily laying out the slightly sad lyrics, with additional vocal backing by the Operation Breadbasket Choir. "Baby, I'm A Fool" is great, too – with ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
