About this item

A chiming guitar, vibes on full and that heady Motown / Ric Tic drumbeat with a falsetto vocal… what’s not to love?

Originally released on Kapp in 1966 and often bootlegged, copies go for in excess of £100 for this excellent, driving floorfiller.

The Hesitations have a few Northern nuggets to their credit - ‘Soul Superman’ is right up there with the best.

Backed with the super bluesy vocal of the legendary Bobby Bland on an aching tale of loss and regret.

A slow smoochy groove with lyrics of genuine heartache… and all this with a resilient slow motion dance beat and some exquisite brass breaks.

Featuring a gorgeous vocal-only drop out, it’s a triumphant return from the man who also released the beautiful ‘Shoes’.

Both sides remastered for sprung dancefloorshaking longevity.
