Make Me Yours
Z.Z. Hill was Kent/Modern’s main artist in the latter half of the 60s. In 1967 the company recorded him on an LP of soul classics, including Bettye Swann’s ‘Make Me Yours’ from only a few months before. His masculine angle on this marvellous song gave it a new dimension that would surely have fared well as a 45, but the track appeared on a single only in the UK, where it was well received but sold only to connoisseurs. Since then it has grown in popularity and at last it is available again for discerning collectors. Peggy Woods’ Northern Soul stomper ‘Love Is Gonna Get You’ was first on 45 in 1988 as a 100 Club anniversary single. With only approximately 400 pressed, it inevitably became sought-after. Here is the number in its original brass-laden glory: a Kent/Modern masterpiece.
