A. The Sapphires - The Slow Fizz
B. The Sapphires - Baby You Got It
The final recording for Jerry Ross’ super group The Sapphires. “The Slow Fizz”, according to girl group expert Mick Patrick, is “a near perfect Go-Go anthem” and who can disagree. Like many great records of its genre it failed to chart but went on to become a favourite on the UK Northern Soul scene and still is to this day. The flip side, “Baby You Got Me”, was unreleased at the time and employs the same backing track but with a different lyric. Almost 50 years on it finally gets an official vinyl release.
