“Because you’re you” /“Love I lost”

Label: The Preservation Project – Catalog: PP011 – Release Date: 30th July 2021 – Format: 7′

We are back with two Soul sides for you for our 11th regular 7″ release.

Both are a perfect fit for the Soul scene. Side A features Maggtapp’s previously unreleased “Because You’re You.” This is a strong female vox lead sublime Modern Soul groover. It features a steady beat and a spacious arrangement – just drums, bass, electric piano, and organ – that lets the vocals float on top of it. It definitely could be a demo or a temporary mix down, as it could be a bit more fleshed out, but it is really quite good as is.

Joe McGlone & The Hot Pepper Band tear up Side B with another previously unreleased gem. “Love I Lost” is an anthemic cover of the Kenny Gamble/Leon Huff tune. It starts with an almost church like organ lifting you into a track that kicks wide open into a 70s Northern Soul floor filler. This is a classic strong Soul lead vocal with a harmony call and response chorus. Just try to keep from tapping your feet and then jumping out on the dancefloor.
