JESSE JAMES / YVONNE BAKER (NORTH BROAD STREET) Mint Condition
To the wider world he is famous, relatively, for that lolloping instrumental The Horse on the iconic Phil LA Soul label, released by Cliff Nobles & Co and selling around 2 million copies initially. However, for the more determined rare soul bod it was James’s unreleased version of the flip that really created interest, his great vocal on Love Is All Right plus a much more strident arrangement made this the side to die for. Although it has had a few UK reissues, it’s still rightly associated as another Acetate discovery of the mighty Butch, the UK’s leading rare soul DJ. Although James is more known as a producer and one of the leading lights in the emerging Philly Sound of the late 60’s this release shows he was a very talented vocalist, with great mellifluous tones.
