MARTHA HIGH: I’d Rather Go Blind/ No More Heartaches (2012)

Classic sister soul alert! Singer for James Brown’s live show for thirty years and Maceo Parker collaborator, Martha High, gets together with Speedometer for this single off the forthcoming Soul Overdue LP in a performance that would suggest she’s aged like a fine wine. It’s a game of two halves with slowy I’d Rather Go Blind pitted against a blistering cover of Vicki Anderson’s funky soul banger No More Heartaches, No More Pain. I know which side I’ll be rinsing. Don’t sleep on it – you’d rather go blind than miss the wax as the money you’ll have to part with for a prime copy of Anderson’s original will definitely occasion you a bit of heartache.
(Out 3 September on Freestyle Records)
