These two tracks have been around since their first releases on Kent LPs in the late 80s. Taken from the Scepter/Wand tapes, the artists had one release each on those labels. Maurice Williams’ ‘Look My Way’ was recorded at the same session as the two songs issued on his Zodiacs-billed Scepter 45, although it outperforms them both. It was assumed that ‘Not Now But Later’ by Walter Johnson was also an unreleased number, but a few years later I discovered a Wand DJ copy in the home of the producer Billy Jackson when the singer’s true identity was found to be Walter Wilson. However, Billy told me that was an alias for Tommy Keith who wrote and recorded some excellent soul music. It is a beautiful self-penned ballad in the Ashford/Simpson mould.
