Judy Freeman & Blackrock "Hold On" / Ted Taylor "Somebody's Always Trying"
Northern Soul Masterpieces reissue for the first time on 7"
The 70s Funky Northern Soul masterpiece by New York-born soul singer Judy Freeman is reissued for the first time on 7".
Ted Taylor was chronically unappreciated throughout his career.
"Somebody's Always Trying" by Ted Taylor is a magnificent uptempo dance floor filler with a pounding rhythm, powerful drums, rocking horns and a great frantic, exasperated vocal. This is the stuff that makes you immediately say, “Who is this?”.
Taylor’s vocal delivery is always tense, with frequent vibrato and extreme ups & downs. Emotions always running wild. This combined with his extreme, one of a kind falsetto, makes for a damn fine recipe of Southern Soul.
