I guess the writing credit for "Burke" on the B Side ls actually Johnnie Taylor himself as he recorded this track under the name Johnnie Burke, But i found no proof - though Solomon Burke and him never worked together on any other track.

What happened to the release of "One and Only" from 2022. It is not included in any official release. And it screams to be pressed on 7" for the (open minded) soul venues!

If it wasn't for the brillant Cover by Jamie Reid on a big 12", this release would be utterly pointless. While Neil Barnes did great stuff with Leftfield, this remix is not very good at all.

Why don't US Companies who press in europe (here: Holland) put away some copies for sale there? Could save us europeans a lot of custom fees (and postage). instead the records are send back and forth - also not good for the environment.

I am sorry, i do like the song - but the 80s stand for a more electronic - sometimes even quite more experimental (in the early years) sound than this - methinks.
