The O’Jays / Willie Hightower ‘No Time For You’ / ‘Because I Love You’ 7"
Pre-order. Due 25th February.
The emotion-packed O’Jays on a stellar mid- tempo groove from 1966, the cream of their mid- 60s time on the Imperial label.
Released just a year before their anthem ‘I Dig Your Act’, it’s a side that smoulders behind the vocal of Eddie Levert, a sax-powered gem.
Original copies go for between £30 and £50, more if it’s in good condition.
Remastered for maximum tear-jerking power by the DNSC Stateside guru.
Backed with a Ric-Tic / Motown-styled drum and harmony classic from the mighty Willie Hightower.
A £60 nugget when released on the original Capitol label back in 1967.
With a hand clapping time change, wayward guitar and gorgeous brass stabs, plus a wild all-girl harmony backing that elevates it to an evocative high.
