(Sandra Phillips - Soul doesn't get much deeper than this)
I have always loved checking out singles B-sides, the ones that didn't get the airplay and the ones that didn't make the lp and the ones often forgotten about when reissues come along.
I was working several years ago on a project for EMI doing a reissue project for the legendary soul label Sue, and had the great pleasure of running through the master library for all the released singles. I wasn't all that familiar with Sandra Phillips and knew the A-side was "You Succeeded", but out of curiosity listened to the B-side "When Midnight Comes". It blew me away and I've loved it ever since.
So here is the seldom heard B-Side to her 1965 hit "You Succeeded", "When Midnight Comes". From what I gather, it's Ike Turner's band in the background. Say no more . . .
