ROY REDMOND Ain't That Terribe / A Change Is Gonna Come
Very little is known about Roy Redmond besides the fact he recorded 4 songs and 2 singles in 1967 for Loma Records, a Warner Bros subsidiary that is well known by Norther Soul/6os Soul aficionados. Redmond's largest success is probably his soulful cover of The Beatles 's "Good Day Sunshine", considered by some as one of the best Beatles covers.
His other single is a more obscure affair featuring on the A side "Ain't That Terrible" and on the flip "A Change Is Gonna Come", a very fine cover of the Sam Cooke's classic - beautiful stuff.
The A side "Ain't That Terrible" is an uptempo, stylish, relentless Northern Soul killer that from the piano opening to the very end, will make you move, stomp and spin unless - you are dead (or deaf).
Relatively unknown, this track is on par with the greatest numbers of the genre such as Lou Pride's "I'm coming home in the morning" or Bob and Earl's "Harlem Shuffle".
This is pure undergound Northern Soul at its absolute best.
