Neck-snapping soul masterpiece from Freddie Scott, famously sampled by Biz Markie for his melancholic pop-rap hit “Just A Friend” and a surefire piano-driven basement party anthem in its own right.
Written and produced by the legendary Gamble & Huff, the track was also sampled by Ghostface Killah for the wonderful "Save Me Dear" with J Dilla also utilising the crunching drums to lace many memorable productions for A Tribe Called Quest and Slum Village.
A peerless piece of deep soul and hip-hop history, here's your chance to own the first ever officially licensed reissue on 45.
On the flip, “Powerful Love” is uptempo guitar-soul with finger-popping swing. Featuring delicate horns and gorgeous backing vocals, it's an unfairly slept-on gem but, given the weight of the A-Side, this is perfectly understandable.
This special 7" single comes housed in a heavy duty custom printed full-colour company sleeve and is limited to just 500 copies. #45friday
