Hard record but brilliant! Can't remember what they had it covered up as though. Joan is right: this was a 'Gene McDaniels' cover-up in the mists of time. A bit of a slur on old Willie McDougal as the two vocalists are like chalk and cheese. I would sell my copy but for the fact that the other side is brilliant, top drawer deep soul which would be expensive to replace. That's the one, I should remember as it had Gene McDaniels cover up written on the card board sleeve when I bought my copy.
I've just dug it out and played it for what must be the first time in over 15 years. Great record! Add your comments now. We have placed cookies on your device to help make this website better.

Corbett80 Posted November 20, As i said, its a hard one in comparison to a lot of higher priced records. Soulfuljules 38 Posted November 20, Will have to keep my eye out for one then In the meantime if anyone who is reading this wants to part with theirs feel free to PM me cheers. B illy Mack was a blind pianist from Greensboro, NC who cut some really fine deep soul 45s under his own name as well as a killer under the name Willy McDougal, which I guess was his real name.
This stop go ballad is one of the most sought after deep 45s I know and no wonder. Check out the beautifully arranged horns as well.
The doomy horns and female chorus add to the air of desperation which hangs over the song. Although this number is about 4 minutes long I can't believe it was recorded after - the feel is far earlier than Mack's major label 45s. This is another blue tinged slowie of considerable merit.
