Description

Stone cold northern soul anthem “I’ll Always Need You” was written by Leon Huff and Len “1-2-3” Barry who originally cut the song in ’66 for his near-mythical UK Brunswick album "It’s That Time Of Year". Courtney’s version is far superior with a Jimmy Wisner arrangement and featuring Cissy Houston and Dee Dee Warwick on backing vocals. I

t was Wisner who brought the song to the attention of RCA along with “My Soul Concerto” which was Dean’s debut 45 coupled with “We Have A Good Thing”, written by John T Mack Jnr of The Charades. Sadly, both of Courtney’s legendary RCA 45s sank without trace along with other Wisner productions of Dean's, unreleased at the time, including “Love Is Wonderful” and Outta Sight's chosen B-side for this 45 reissue, “Today Is My Day”.
