Tracklicensing have just licensed these two fantastic Brunswick masters to the DNSC Record label for a limited 7″ vinyl. Two great Brunswick sides on one disc from two of the greatest soul vocalists The A Side features Tyrone Davis’ version of Clarence Carters’ “Slip Away” from the album “Can I Change Your Mind” which has never previously been available as a single. A mid-tempo toe tapper with a mid-section brass build, underpinned by a funky groove. The flipside cranks up the action with Gene Chandler’s riotous take on James Brown’s anthem “There Was A Time”, worth the entry for the horn stabs alone, it’s an expressive slice of sharp edged driving funk.
Gene Chandler – There Was A Time – from Gene Chandler Duke of Soul (The Brunswick Years) ℗ Demon Music Group.
