Who Can I Run Too (1967)
We collected as many Sue label 45’s as we could, this is one that found its way to the Garrard twin decks at Manchester’s Blue Note Club. Although recorded in 1967 it was played in 1969/70 as it had been obtained for sixpence at Mazels (by DLomas) second hand record shop on London Road: a bargain and now sort after on the Northern Soul scene – well isn’t everything…
Gerri was a session backing singer with Huey “Piano ” Smith, and at one time a member of Ray Charles backing girl singers: The Raylette’s.”Who Can I Run Too” was originaly released in the USA on the HOT-LINE label
Notes from a Soul fan, Doulas Hadgraft, who visited this page: said –
” Hi David,
I stumbled across your website tonight. I’m from Stockport but living in Edinburgh just now. Around four years ago, I finished the UK Sue 45 series, it took me 25 years to finish the set. A lot came from Les at Kingbee Records Manchester). But I see tonight, you have a Gerri Hall on a red and yellow issue. Is that genuine? ”
Maybe it was an import (HOT LINE) that Dave Lomas had – Can’t remember – so long ago.
