Gettin' To Me
Ben E King’s epic ‘Gettin’ To Me’ went unheard for 30 years until an 8-inch acetate turned up in London’s West End. A few years later it was given a Kent CD release, along with 23 other Northern classics from the Atlantic vaults. Following a further 16 years of demand we have finally succumbed to a 45 release. As if that weren’t enough, the best uptempo Northern discovery of last year backs it up: the Marvellos’ unissued Loma stomper ‘I Need You’. The A-side comes courtesy of producers Leiber and Stoller, the flip from Willie Hutch and Marc Gordon.
