Arnold Blair was a backing singer for Leroy Hutson. Arnold only released one record, sadly newspaper reports said he that was found murdered in his Holland Street apartment May 17 1996, but what a tune to be remembered by, a rare groove classic, co written & produced by the legendary Leroy Hutson. Look out for another track previously unreleased and recorded at the same session called 'Finally Made It Home'

Don't be paying daft money for this when you can buy it straight from the source for £9.99

Wonderful wonderful rare groove! Chicago soul at it's very best produced by Leroy Hutson. Strange that after creating this masterpiece Arnold Blair never released any other tracks? One of my favourite records of all time and it will make you feel good all over every time you hear this track.
