Doris Willingham – You Can’t Do That
Pat Hervey With The Tiaras – Can’t Get You Out Of My Mind
Two classic cuts from the President catalogue…
Doris Willingham – You Can’t Do That – A big Northern floor filler from a renowned soul backing singer who cut her own material later as Doris Duke. It was her only release under the Willingham name, originally out on the super cool UK Jay Boy imprint in 1968 (the label’s debut release BOY1). Produced by Bernard Purdie (Funky Donkey label) who was at the controls for a number of super rare northern sides. An early gem from the artist who ended up working with the legendary Swamp Dogg (Jerry Williams) charting with the ballad ‘To The Other Woman (I’m The Other Woman)’.
Pat Hervey & The Tiaras – I Can’t Get You Out Of My Mind – An anthemic handclap-friendly gem that goes for anywhere between 50 and £100 on the UK President label from 1966. Blue-eyed Canadian soul from the country’s Brenda Lee/Connie Francis – backed by black Canadian harmony group The Tiaras (not to be confused with the LA harmony outfit). A slow burner that ramps up the horns and strings behind some funky guitar chops and Hervey’s euphoric vocal, her one-off stab at the soul charts guaranteeing obscurity and its legendary status.
