A. Shirley Wahls - Why Am I Crying
B. Shirley Wahls - That's How Long (I'm Gonna Love You)
SHIRLEY WAHLS had a remarkably short lived solo recording career for someone with such a strong, emotive, deep soul voice. However, her debut single for King Records has to be regarded as one of the greatest double-header Northern Soul 45s of all time. When Shirley’s voice kicks in at around 15 seconds you know, in that spine-tingling instant, that you’re listening to something very special. At the hands of producer Bill “Bunky” Sheppard Shirley delivers an incredibly emotional performance straight out of the church where she was somewhat of a star working with the likes of the Argo and Ward Singers. And the B-side is equally stunning!
