Jimmy Norman "Gangster of Love"
midtempo Monster of soul!!
Released on Josie. Same label as much of the faumous and much sampled Meters-material came from. Bumped into this track a while ago and simply had to get this 7 inch!!! Jimmy Norman recorded a version of "Gangster of Love" in 1968 which was originally written and recorded by Johnny Watson in 1957. Normans Version is quite a bit different than Watsons. Both great. But after hearing the intro on Jimmys version I was sold!!! Sounds like an goldenage sample that to my knowledge has not been used untill recetly on Lone Catalysts "Back to school".
But I can ofcourse be wrong. well enough with the writing check sound :
