Prince Phillip Mitchell / Lou Ragland - I'm So Happy / Since You Said You'd Be Mine (7" Single)
Prince Phillip Mitchell has been performing, writing and producing since the early '60s and even spent a little time with Alvin Cash's backing group the Cash Registers. He wrote hits for Mel And Tim and Millie Jackson but is best known on the Northern Soul scene for his Shout recording Free For All and our chosen side, the crossover soul anthem I'm So Happy.
Lou Ragland shot to fame on the Northern Soul scene with his four-figure rarity I Travel Alone, recorded for Amy Records in May 1967. It was his hometown buddy, Edwin Starr, that helped Ragland secure the deal, and although a flop at the time it cemented his popularity in England. When Starr came to the UK in 1983 with his Ric-Tic Revue Ragland was invited along and, at last, got the recognition he deserved.
