‘I’ll Be On My Way’ is not only a staggeringly beautiful song, it’s also a super rare side filled with those strings that recall the echoey ceiling of Wigan Casino.
A supremely soulful cut with a sturdy beat from 1966, with a classic vocal to fall in love with.
Originally on Big Mack and going for over two grand, even the re-issue on Goldmine fetches 75 quid, it’s such a stormer.
Cut with The Volumes’ funky floor surfer ‘I’ve Never Been So In Love’.
Filled with horn slurps over a crazed organ anchor, it chugs into a singalong chorus that’s impossible to forget.
From 1969 and originally on the obscure Garu label, it goes for between 40 and 140 pounds if you can find a copy.
