The gorgeous Voice of Little Anthony to gether with the Imperials. This obviously isn’t one of his run-to-the-dancefloor-and-backdrop tunes and it can’t really be called rare as it reached #10 in the charts but it is sooooo good!
I am a sucker for mid-tempo and ballads to be honest and this is one of a host of similar tunes put out by this group in the 60’s, Many of them on the DCP label and in conjunction with Teddy Randazzo (as this one is.
The best copy to get is of course the picture sleeve which you can see on the right, for no better reason than picture sleeves are cool!
A bonus on this record is the equally beautiful b-side “Reputation” which is a guilty story told in song. You can hear this [here] from my extremely crackly copy – I must get a new one as they are plentiful and (without picture sleeve) only cost about $5.
