Dana Valery is best known in UK soul circles for her Northern classic, “You Don’t Know Where Your Interest Lies”, however there is much more to the lady as this fabulous new double-header from Go Ahead demonstrates. Both tracks are lifted from her rare 1972 Brunswick LP “Not The Flower, But The Root” and really are the epitome of 70s sophisticated soul dancers.
“You Babe” is a Curtis Mayfield song which has a huge underground following, while Dana’s reading of Jackie Wilson’s “This Love Is Real” has collectors scurrying to find that elusive album. Well, now the wait is over as both these in-demand tracks are released on a worldwide exclusive 45 on Go Ahead. Strictly limited to 500 copies only and in a collectors picture sleeve with in-depth notes from label boss, Richard Searling.
