RECORD STORE DAY 2020
Very little is known about Roy Redmond besides the fact IN 1967 he recorded 4 songs and 2 singles 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 greatest Beatles covers ever.His other single is a much obscure affair featuring on the A side "Ain't That Terrible" and on the flip "A Change Is Gonna Come", a fine version of Sam Cooke's masterpiece.The A side "Ain't That Terrible" though is a complete different affair: it is an uptempo, stunning, relentless dance floor stomper that grabs you and never, ever, lets go...This track is on par with ANY of the greatest tracks of the genre, yet mazingly, this single has never been repressed since 1967 and is now very much in demand.And rightly so: this is Northern Soul at its absolute finest...To be played often and loud!"
