Ships In 2/3 Days
Shane Martin (aka Neale Lundgren) first recorded for Columbia's Epic subsidiary as a teenager in 1968 scoring a modest hit with his debut 45 Youâre So Young. The record made its way to the clubs in the UK where the B-side was preferred and some 40 years on I Need You remains a Northern Soul anthem. Taj Mahal originally signed to Columbia as part of a 3-piece band, The Rising Sons, alongside Ry Cooder. The band split after one single leaving Mahal to reshape his blues sound and enjoy a long and prolific solo career. A Lot Of Love featured on his second album The Natch'l Blues and first appeared on the rare soul scene at The Twisted Wheel.
