I'm still in love with you.....

Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of the band Black Merda. And I do understand that after playing on a number of great sides in Detroit, under several different names, that Anthony Hawkins, VC L. Weasley, Charles Hawkins, Tyron Hite, et al, wanted to do something different than play straight up soul/funk.

But....I really don't understand how the guys could record this absolutely amazing one-off 45 with Linnie Walker [the Hawkins brothers' sister] and apparently not consider the project worthy of more effort.

Actually, I'm a little pissed off that they didn't 'cause I think I deserve to hear more Linnie. How's that for being self-centered?

Btw, all of Black Merda's recordings are still available on one format or another. That includes the killer collection of rarities titled, "The Psych Funk Of Black Merda", on which both sides of this 45 can be found.

Hope ya'll enjoy.........
