More Info

Two Motown classics; The Isley Brothers’ flipside to ‘Take Me In Your Arms (Rock Me A Little While)’, ‘Why When Love Is Gone’ (written by Ivy Hunter) comes with a rollicking Tamla backbeat and an anthemic fist punching heartbreaking chorus line. Released in 1967 in the UK, copies go for £40 on the original label.

The flipside features the previously unreleased on 7” ‘Can’t Hold Back The Feeling’, recorded in 1966 by the enigmatic Brenda Holloway. A string-driven slice of euphoric soul, it features Brenda’s deep soulful croon (which hit big with ‘Every Little But Hurts’) on an emphatic stomper.
