TYRONE DAVIS & GENE CHANDLER – Slip Away/There Was A Time
Split 7″- Vinyl
Two great Brunswick sides on one disc, from two of the greatest soul vocalists. The A side features Tyrone Davis’ version of Clarence Carter’s Slip Away from his essential Can I Change My Mind album, which has never previously been available as a single. A mid-tempo toe tapper with a mid-section brass build that’s underpinned by a funky groove.
The flipside cranks up the action with Gene Chandler’s riotous take on James Brown’s anthem There Was A Time. Worth the entry for the horn stabs alone, it’s an expressive slice of sharp-edged driving funk.
