THE O’JAYS / WILLIE HIGHTOWER
– No Time For You / Because I Love You
7″ – Limited Edition Black Vinyl
The O’Jays “No Time For You” is an emotion-packed stellar mid-tempo groove from 1966. The cream of their mid-60s time on the Imperial label, it was released just a year before their anthem, “I Dig Your Act“. Original pressings can fetch $40-70, and even more if it’s in good condition. It is remastered for maximum tear jerking power by the Deptford Northern Soul Club Records.
It is backed with Willie Hightower‘s “Because I Love You“. This Ric-Tic/Motown-styled drum and harmony classic was originally released on Capitol back in 1967. The hand clapping time change, wayward guitar, gorgeous brass stabs, and a wild all-girl harmony backing, elevates it to an evocative high.
