A. Cody Black - I'm Slowly Holding
B. Charles Spurling - She Cried Just A Minute
CODY BLACK was born and raised in Cincinnati in the shadow of King Records where he cut this landmark Northern Soul 45 “I’m Slowly Molding” in 1968. However, it didn’t impact on the UK soul scene until the mid-Eighties when, at last, it finally hit at the ground-breaking ‘Top Of The World’ club in Stafford. Still a mainstay of the All-Nighter scene to this day and commanding prices in the region of $1,000. Black recorded a string of 45s for as many labels including the highly prized “It’s Our Time To Fall In Love” on ‘GIG’ and the sublime “Mr Blue” on ‘D-Town’.
CHARLES SPURLING was a fellow Cincinnati music hustler working as an A&R man at King Records when he cut this pounding Northern Soul dancer in 1967. AWESOME!
