HERBERT HUNTER will be forever worshiped by the UK Northern Soul scene for his anthemic 45 “I Was Born to Love You”, recorded in the home of country music, Nashville, in 1967. Sometimes things are just meant to be and they collide in perfect harmony. “I Was Born To Love You” is a case in point. The perfect lyric – “I Was Born To Love You, You Were Born To Tear My Heart Apart” – the perfect beat, and perfect timing as it crashed onto these shores in the summer of ’76 when Northern Soul was at its zenith and Wigan Casino owned the All-Nighter scene! But, Hunter is no one-trick pony, as his list of collectable 45s bears testament, not least “Happy Go Lucky”, also on Spar. Hunter was part of Ted Jarrett’s roster of artists and, under Jarrett’s stewardship recorded a string of cover versions under the pseudonym Leroy Jones for the neighbouring budget label ‘Hit’. He learnt much of his trade from established artists and label mates such as Gene Allison who he toured with as minder and nursemaid, due to Allison’s drink problem. Often, when they arrived a venue, Allison was too drunk to perform and Hunter would step in for him.


For our B-side we’ve chosen a lesser known, but no less wonderful and gritty Northern Soul dancer “I Know The Feelin’” by THE JADES. Currently very much in demand with a mint copy selling earlier this year for over $900. We know little about The Jades who recorded this incredible slab of up-tempo soul for Ted Jarrett’s Poncello label in 1964 featuring, of course, Herbert Hunter’s booming lead vocal.
Many thanks to Fred James for making this superb double-sider possible.
