Lou Rawls ~ You’ll Never Find ~ Philadelphia International ~ 1976

Produced by Gamble & Huff and lifted from his album ‘All Things In Time’, in May 1976 it made number 1 on the US R&B chart, where it stayed for two weeks. It could be bought on ‘special edition’ blue vinyl in the UK.

Arthur Prysock ~ When Love Is New ~ Old Town Records US/ Polydor UK ~ 1976.

Arranged and produced by John Davis (of Monster Orchestra fame) and written by Gamble & Huff, this saw big the Jazz singer who’d recorded with Count Basie and had several R&B and Pop hits in the ‘50’s and ‘60s achieve a surprise hit, especially on the disco dance-floors. Number 10 US R&B his second biggest hit.

D C LaRue ~ Cathedrals ~ Pyramid Records US/ Pye UK ~ 1976

From what was an important year in Disco music, when it changed from being ‘the new kid on the block’ to the start of its wider acceptance, comes this Disco classic. For some reason in the UK we punctuated the title of the single, to the form to be found on the LP, i.e. CA-THE-DRALS.
