Soulful Football Update: July 2022
Vann & Reggie “If this ain’t love”/ “I’m falling in love” (Brilliant Minds Records) 7’
Two top sides from a superb year of 1983.If This Ain’t Love, is my fav side on this tough to find 45. Still sounds so fresh, another record I would never part with. The only record they released together, which is very sad. Another must have for your collection.
Reggie Garland “Why now” (Big Willie Records) 7’
Another top record produced by Reggie Garland. Along with the Vann & Reggie 45 I mentioned before, this is another outstanding tune. With background vocals by Ladonna Bell from the group Mixed Sugar, it floats along so well, with the whole production making it just so good. Not that well known, but one I would recommend if you like classy early 80s soul.
