Until recently this unknown Virtue acetate was unearthed from the belongings of legendary Philly producer/musician/songwriter John Stiles. Recorded around the same time as “Stay Mine For Heaven Sake” at Virtue Studios in Philadelphia. Eddie’s rendition of “Ready, Willing and Able” was something that was thought to have been written potentially for another singer which was to be determined but he sang on the track as a reference point to whoever this might be, which was not an unusual practice. His piercing vocals added to a pounding “Northern soul” style beat lends itself to a packed and sweaty dancefloor.
“I Lost You”/ “I need you like a baby” (Soul Direction) 7′
Catalog: SD001 Release Date: 5-10th October 2020
Firstly credit goes to Jason @ Carolina soul for helping to unearth this and other great unreleased tracks.From the Vaults of the Don Davis estate and penned by Tony Hestor this albeit a version of the Hollidays classic track on Groove City this track stands up on it’s own terms and is different enough to make it stand alone as a future classic.
