|1.||Prince Phillip Mitchell - "I'm So Happy" (4:35)|
|1.||Lou Ragland - "Since You Said You'd Be Mine" (3:15)|
Two rare northern soul gems from two much slept-on OGs. West coast royalty Mitchell takes the A-side of this powerful 45" with the gutsy feel-good romp from 79. Fittingly titled "I'm So Happy", it's a driving piece of late 70s soul right down to the wolf whistles and band cheers. Flip for an equally potent spell from Lou Ragland. Usually famed for his four-figure cult piece "I Travel Alone", here we find him yearning with authenticity on the 1979-release "You Said You'd Be Mine". Backed by honeyed BVs and full band orchestration, this has the power to stop a dancefloor in its tracks almost 40 years later. And probably still will in 40 years time.
