The Second ‘Diggin’ Deep’ Limited Edition 45

Release Date 5th Oct 2018

Available To Pre-Order from 24th Sept 2018!

DD 002A  C J & Co ‘Let Them Talk”
DD 002B  Joe Matthews ‘What Every Little Girl Needs

Our second release is a real turn up for the books. Who would have thought, a stunningly soulful release from such doyens of the US DISCO scene, CJ & Co, ably supported on the flipside by the legendary Joe Matthews.

The ‘A’ side is a fabulous mid-tempo, 70’s soul stepper from C J & Co, produced by Mike Theodore and Dennis Coffey. A killer modern soul track which has received massive appreciation wherever it’s been played during the past 12 months. It’s a ‘slipping around’ love song with a fabulous hook that will grab everyone from the get go. And the vocals are absolutely superb! All who have heard it agree, it’s uncanny that something of this quality could have shown up some 40 years after it was recorded. We believe that “Let Them Talk” will become a massive dancefloor favourite on this, its very first issue in any format, anywhere in the world! Out now for a very limited time on vinyl 45.

The ‘B’ side is different gravy, but has the same quality Detroit pedigree. As a Westbound soul release it is such a rare record that its actual existence is open to debate. The release number for the single is documented as Westbound 146 but we’re pretty certain that it never came out. It actually had a ZTSC matrix number against it, which means that its manufacture was ordered and the pressing plant allocated the number, but until now, this mystery single has never appeared. It’s a fabulous ‘crossover soul’ track of the highest order and something that every Detroit Soul fan must have in the collection. Now that it’s finally obtainable on Diggin’ Deep Records!

Both sides are now available on a beautifully mastered 45 for the very first time.

This collector’s release is a limited pressing @ just £12 each plus postage and packing.

Avoid Disappointment. Pre-order now, while stocks last.
Note: Only one copy per person. First come, first served.

DD 001A  Willie Walker ‘Two Paces Ahead Of Love”
DD 001B  Barbara Brown ‘It Hurts Me So Much’

Our first release joins together two stalwarts of the Southern Soul scene, stemming from Sounds of Memphis records.

The ‘A’ side is a scorching mid-tempo, Deep Soul stepper from the legendary Willie Walker. A ‘crossover soul’ track which has already proven itself on the floor at such progressive venues as Soul Essence and Diggin’ Deep. We believe that “Two Paces Ahead Of Love” will become a firm dancefloor favourite on its very first vinyl issue.

Flip it over and we present the most stunning Deep Soul ballad from Barbara and the Browns. This track has long been revered by the Deep Soul fraternity and “It Hurts Me So Much” is considered by many to be one of the finest unissued ‘Deepies’ to come out of Memphis!

Both sides are now available on a beautifully mastered 45 for the very first time.

This collector’s release is a limited pressing @ just £12 each plus postage and packing.
