There has been a lot of things written about that 6 seconds 4sure. Interesting find Dude. :thumbsup:

I have a 45 of Color Him Father that I bought back in the early 70's but mine is not an original issue. My copy has Love Of The Common People on the flip side. I do have 3 copies of the Winstons album though. That album is a little hard to find and a little pricey sometimes. I had a poor copy for years. Last summer I got a hair in my butt to look for a better copy. When one appeared on ebay, it was in England. I bought and before it arrived another one became available here in the US. I bought it too just in case the one in England got damaged or was not as described. I wound up with both copies and both are nice. I'm probably one of a very few people that have 3 copies of that album. :lol:

I ripped my poor copy a year or two (three?) ago. One of these days I'll rip my better copies. I may buy a large format scanner to make it easier to scan the covers. Scanning covers on a standard size scanner is a pain in the butt.

I saw a promo copy in Argentina last year. I wish I had bought it too just for the heck of it. The label was different but the cover art was the same. Anyhooooo, that's it from here. :smile:

Here is a youtube of the track.


I like 60s R&B and I really like the entire album. :thumbsup:

I guess that's why I have 3 copies and you don't. :tongue:

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
