Now finally have acquired a copy of this faultless full version gem, vibes, guitar, flute and stings! The sonics and excellent and come from a master tape and NOT a needle drop.

The only flaws with this pressing are really just minor irritations and lack of attention to detail.

1, PMTWGO was (c) and (p) 1972 NOT 1974 (that as correctly stated applies to HGC&GI

2 The Cutting engineer did not take full advantage of the sonics space he had at his disposal and cut both tracks on a tight spiral, when the grub screw could have been loosened up and a louder and wider groove cut. But hey-ho!

3. The speed of 33.3 rpm was left off the text/info a silly and stupid blunder (making the false assumption that all USA cut and released 12" singles always play at 33.3 NOT THEY DO NOT!)

4. The original 1972 B side was Point Of No Return so IMHO HGC&GI has been assigned a factually incorrect Cat/Matrix
the "lame" excuse will be that this is !2AV not (7) AV I like HGC&GI (was one of the UK Phonogram Soul Peepers series of "wonderful IEP 7" singles) BUT since the A was a full version project B could have and should m so easily been the same by cutting the full version of Rockin' Roll Baby @ 4.17 as against the 7" 3min something for "wonderful" USA radio play!!! Never Mind, just logical and very wishful thinking could have even been a 2 tracker B side!. (= more $ale$).

5. In the quest to pay attention to SOME detail the biggest $ales$ tool that they had at their behest was do have a 12" Die Cut Avco Company sleeve done (dead easy to copy an original USA 7" sleeve from 1972+ and just modify any text to suit) would have just given this little gem a real head start and boost rather than a bulk standard white card original so..........exciting! But hey-ho I should not complain I have the physical as a 12" full version single (only 38 years late! Work out the maths!!! (12" singles began thank's to Avco's NY neighbours and friends Salsoul in 1976).

Go seek this item out before it's too late and they are all gone a must have item for any Soul lover. MOBO lover Philly Soul lover. Lack of attention to detail only looses 1/2 a point!.
