RUSHING

“I want to be in love”/ Tell your boyfriend”

Catalog: ZP50
Release Date: 9th October 2020

Jam City (Chicago, USA) & IZIPHO Soul Records (Surrey, UK) collaborate to bring you one of the finest discoveries of the year, which have been tracked down and first played by Mark Merry (Soul Sermon) Paul Regan & Pete Ratcliffe. Blown away on first listen, we knew what we had to do and quickly got to work with producer and writer Al Wordlaw.
Back in the late 80s, the singer simply known as ‘RUSHING’ was a local sensation, performing to sold out crowds whenever he was booked for Chicagoland performances. No surprise when you hear the vocals on these incredible songs.
Both songs were recorded in 1987, but never released. Thankfully the the original reels were kept and have been restored, transferred and mastered for a vinyl release thirty three years later!
