Over the next week or so I intend to post a string of great B-sides. They should be coming at you thick and fast. Yes at a posting frequency never before seen hereabouts! Possibly daily!!
This little series was prompted initially by this perfectly appropriately named Evelyn King B-side, heard a few weeks ago on an Internet radio show (Andy Smith, I think). That sounds good I thought, and after a rummage through the boxes I realised I had my very own copy. (It was during this rummage that I rediscovered Evelyn’s “Let’s Get Funky Tonight”, posted a few weeks ago). Since then I’ve had a few good sessions pulling records out of my boxes and have reacquainted myself with a lot of other really strong B-sides so I thought I would share some of them.
“The Other Side Of Love” was, in fact, the other side of “I’m In Love”, a tune I just couldn’t get enough of back in the day which probably accounted for me overlooking this great track, until now.
(It’s bugging me too because it reminds me strongly of something else – Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway? An Ashford & Simpson track? No, something else I think. I’m sure I’ve got it whatever it is but I can’t put my finger on it. Any help would be appreciated.)
