RIP OF THE WEEK : One Way (ft Al Hudson) - Tonight

Sorry for the lack of activity on the blog as of late, in order to make up for it here is a very special tune ripped cleanly (as possible) off my very own 7".

This tune is a rarity of sorts, the B-side to the way-more-famous "Music" single by One Way, a fine example of the talents of wunderkind producer: Kevin McCord. Never released on LP this great song was only available on 12" and the 7".

Kevin McCord is one of the reasons why I started collecting records. After I heard his jam "Never Say" on a Dam Funk mix I needed more. I turned this record up on my 3rd ever visit to a record store, $2.

It's not a wall to wall dance floor destroyer, just a lovely groove with some trademark piano, and frequent collaborator Alicia Myers on the vocal. An early example (1979) of the brilliance of Mr Kevin McCord. Hopefully you all enjoy this song as much as I do.

Great track ... was also released by Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes in 1980 again Kevin and Alicia Meyers credited on the track ... also 'Tonight' was available on an LP but only in Turkey, on Melodi Plak label ...
