Savoy Gospel Catalog Promotional 45's - ON SALE NOW!
23rd December 2019
We're promoting the new Savoy Catalog compilation due out in early January 2020 via the Honest Jon's record label....as part of the promo, we're releasing three firepowered 45's, most of which are getting their first release ever on the single format.
Famous Ward Singers - I'm getting richer b/w Jessy Dixon - Wade in the water 7"
The Famous Ward Singers delivers a true rarity from the catalog....an r&b flecked mover that's highly desirable to DJ's within the genre. And for the first time, Jessy Dixon's incendiary version of 'Wade in the water' gets a long overdue release on the format that suits this sound perfectly. An all but practically unknown version to most, buried away on an LP, this take comes on as hard as a steam train runnin' the tracks. Essential.
Edith Moreno - Get ready for judgement day b/w Helen Hollins Singers - He gave it to me 7"
Edith Moreno is possibly the rarest record to come out of the Savoy stable. For years this 45 was the missing number in all discographies, and wasn't disovered til only 2 years ago. It's a phenomenal call to the dancefloor with it's live sounding production blurring the lines between church and dancefloor. A huge club tune, unleashed for the first time. Helen Hollins takes us on a modern soul ride to Sunday sessioned boogie town to seal out one sweetly packaged 45.
Metro-tones Inc. - Get together / Get together (instrumental) b/w Why don't you love a man like this / Why don't you love a man like this (instrumental) 10"
Two tracks (including their instrumentals) taken from the much hyped Metrotones, Inc. LP....the lead cut is a downtempo proto hiphop banger, with that low slung feel...the other is a solid mid paced funker for all you steppers out there. Only ever released previously and availble on the LP, here are the two main cuts isolated for your enjoyment.
