Some of you may know the excellent version of ‘Time is on my side’ on this album which for my money blows the Stones out the water.
For me the song that always gets me is ‘I need your love so bad’ which is a Little Willie John cover. The whole album is one that I will tend to enjoy best late at night, with the lights down, and a large smooth glass of cognac.
(If anyone has a copy of this on vinyl they don’t want, especially the stereo version then please let me know!)
You may have a point here as Imperial records were sold to Liberty in 64. At the point of sale many of the imperial roster were ‘let go’ and new artists like Irma were brought on. The reason this has any bearing is that it may be possible the ‘Stereo’ issue is folded / Re-channeled / fake stereo. I do not know the answer here but with fake stereo one channel will sound bright and the other very dull. (Off to one side)
