You Can’t Run Away From Your Heart” – Judy Clay’s first Stax release in August 1967 was played at Manchester‘s Blue Note Club – as were many Stax recordings, that weren’t often heard anywhere else. Of course Private Number was a chart hit, but the other side was equal to it and as often requested at the Blue Note.
