She Wants A Stand In
Availability: Out of stock
Gloria Barnes' 1971 debut album, Uptown, has long been a holy grail of many funk and soul collectors. A quick search on a popular online music marketplace will confirm its rare and expensive nature, with copies changing hands for well over L1,000. Recently launched reissue imprint Suncut has done us all a favour, then, by licensing two of the best tracks from that set and whacking them on this dinked 7" single. Both tracks are naturally superb. Barnes' powerful, evocative vocals come to the fore on the loose, mid-tempo sweetness of A-side "She Wants A Stand In", before whipping up a storm on the fiendishly percussive, up-tempo flipside anthem "If You Don't Need Him".
