Quickie: Betty Wright - I'll Love You Forever

It's really not like me to ignore a B-side but every once in a while one slips thru the cracks. I've owned the source LP along with multiple of instances of the A side appearing on various comps throughout my collection but never took much notice of this single's flipside until a few days ago while combing thru a box of battered 45s. No doubt you're already familiar with Betty Wright's massive '71 hit, "Clean Up Woman." but today, allow me to present to you the other side of Alston A-4601 (the catalog number...yep, record geekiness in full swing). I'm sure most of the crate diggers and collectors out there know this one already but for those of you that don't, listen and enjoy.

If you're looking for a 45 copy of your own, you shouldn't have too much trouble as one can usually find a super cheap copy right here. No turntable? No problem. Back in 2006, the good people at Water records saw fit to reissue Betty's 1972 album, I Love The Way You Love, on CD. You can fetch a copy by clicking here.

Isaac Hayes - Live At The Sahara Tahoe

A legend, pioneer and icon has slipped away.

This classic, as well as most of Isaac's body of work is still in print and easy to find in all formats. Do yourself a favor and pick up a CD here, or better still an original press LP here.

Featured cut: "Ike's Rap VI"
