Song For November – Lenny Curtis – Who You Gonna Run To
Issued on the End label in 1967 and the flip side to Nothing Can Help You Now by Lenny Curtis and another one of my favourite 60s Soul ballads. Utterly captivating and one in my all time top top ten 2+ minutes of speechlessness. A beautiful slice of Southern Soul on so many levels.
