Johnny West - Tears Baby / It Ain't Love - Soul
Awesome R&B / early soul out of Detroit. One of the hottest R&B double siders ever from the otherwise unknown, one-and-done vocalist Johnny West. Stick on 'Tears Baby' and from the evocative intro onwards, you feel it doesn't get much better than this, until you flip it over and play 'It Ain't Love' which builds and builds into a climax of howling, wailing gospel-tinged vocal screams.
I think I need a lie down after this one.
