Tony Broaders – Promise To Myself / Bill Brandon – Rainbow Road14 November 2018
Our newest 45 is a double sider that Diggin’ Deep are extremely proud to be able to bring to you. Two stunning sides, each with a very different flavour, though both are classic ‘Muscle Shoals’ soul tracks, emanating from Quin Ivy’s famous Quinvy Sound Studio in Sheffield, Alabama, USA.
Tony Borders “Promise To Myself” is a side which has received huge appreciation for many years, at the most discerning soul music venues, worldwide. Copies are in the hands of the very few, and there simply aren’t enough to go around. This exclusive Diggin’ Deep issue is its first release in almost 40 years and should go some small way to meeting the demand for this indispensible dance floor gem. Out now for a very limited time on vinyl 45.
The flipside is an epic tale, long regarded as a true Deep Soul masterpiece. We are honoured to be able to bring you Bill Brandon’s absolutely colossal ‘Rainbow Road’ as the latest addition to our catalogue. It’s an anthemic tale of poverty, fame, and tragedy, penned by Donnie Fritts and Dan Penn and understood to have been written for Arthur Alexander – although Brandon’s is the original released version, recorded in 1968, some three years earlier than Arthur’s Warner Brothers LP track.
Soul music simply doesn’t get much better than this. An entire life story in just three minutes. A record that every Deep Soul fan needs to have in their collection. We are sure this double sider will be a welcome issue for lovers of the deeper side of soul – and be seen as a fitting tribute to the legendary Sheffield studio, Quinvy. Both sides are now available on a beautifully mastered 45 for the first time in over 40 years. DD003 collector’s release is a limited pressing @ just £12 each plus postage and packing.
