‘There Was A Time’ is known to rare soul fans as ‘Our Love Is Dying’ by Kae Williams, as which it appeared on a fake Treasure Island label for some YouTube clips, but the truth is it was an unissued tape find. Given the haunting quality of such a great soul song, various DJs had it cut to acetate. It was titled after a line in the lyrics and accredited to Kae Williams, who produced the track and owned the Junior label for which it was recorded. The real artist is Joe Burrell, as revealed on the master tape owned by Jamie Records, who ran many of the major soul labels in the Philadelphia area. Here it is coupled with the all-time Northern classic ‘This Gets To Me’ by Pookie Hudson, which is in constant demand and has been unavailable for many years.
