Chris Farlowe & The Excellos 45

by Modculture 6 January, 2011

Another vintage-style 45 you might have missed. In fact I missed it too – just as well Doug has flagged up this Chris Farlowe & The Excellos 45 – Tell Me Mama / I'm Going Upstairs.

Yes, that Chris Farlowe, doing some R&B, rockin' blues, call it what you like – but it's a cracking little groove (or two if you like). Check out the audio of the track on the selling page to find out how good.

It's on the Rollin' Records label, but you can pick it up on red vinyl on eBay right now – £6.99 secures you one.
