A chiming guitar, vibes on full and that heady Motown/Ric Tic drumbeat with a falsetto vocal… what’s not to love? Originally released on Kapp in 1966 and often bootlegged, copies go for in excess of £100 for this excellent, driving floor filler. The Hesitations have a few northern nuggets to their credit, ‘Soul Superman’ is right up there with the best.
Backed with the super bluesy vocal of the legendary Bobby Bland on an aching tale of loss and regret. A slow smoochy groove with lyrics of genuine heartache… and all this with a resilient slow motion dance beat and some exquisite brass breaks. Featuring and a gorgeous vocal-only drop out and a triumphant return from the man who also released the beautiful ‘Shoes’. Both sides remastered for sprung dancefloor-shaking longevity.
