By School pals – Sugar Pie Desanto and Etta James

A fitting anthem for the UK Soul scene as the early clubs where virtually all in basements (cellars). This 45 was ‘burned’ over and over again it was so hot at the Twisted Wheel, Manchester.

Sugar Pie Desanto had two great hits with R and B enthusiasts – SOULFUL DRESS and SLIP IN MULES (NO HIGH HEEL SNEAKERS). Etta James had quite a few – STOP THE WEDDING, I’D RATHER GO BLIND, I JUST WANNA MAKE LOVE TO YOU and TELL MAMMA.
