Description

For the third release on the freshly minted Twilight label (Twinight was still a few releases away from becoming a reality), it was already establishing itself as a harbor for eccentric sounds. From producer Jimmy Jones first pedal steel wail to the loping waltz rhythms, “Temptation Is Hard To Fight” comes out of leftfield as one of the most unique soul ballads recorded in Chicago in the 1960s. Jones brought in a girlfriend and few of her friends for wo-oo-oo-oo-ooohs, giving the cut an amature, yet haunted feel. The flip is a thoroughly catchy mid-tempo R&B workout, featuring George McGregor's brother Billy fresh off his "Mr. Shy" sessions. Unavailable on Eccentric Soul: Twinight's Lunar Rotation, it's available here for the first time since its original issue in 1967.
