(Git Your) Backfield In Motion – UK Verve 1966

This track by the Poindexter Brothers was a great big Manchester Allnighter Soul Hit – about American football terms related to the girlfriend. (See Mel and Tim). It looks like these guys went under different names depending on whether the sun was out or not!

For a fuller story of the strange issues and re-issues of this song and various artists names like Mel & Tim see SOUL DIRECTIONS. They went one to co-write The Thin Line Between Love And Hate for The Persuaders, released in 1971. Then “I Dig Your Act” for the O Jays.

Mel & Tim version exactly the same – the strange story of BACKFIELD IN MOTION @ SOUL-DIRECTIONS.
