The Hesitations / Bobby "Blue" Bland & Michael Omartian
Soul Superman / Ain’t No Love In The Heart Of The City
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.
