Lead Me On

Today’s track was a crossover hit at the turn of the century. It was an in demand record on both the modern and northern dance floors and an original 7″ will cost you upwards of £50 these days.

Lead Me On by Gwen McCrae was given a full release by Universal in 1972 but as is often the case with tracks posted on this blog did not see much chart action. The song was an old gospel – blues song recorded by Bobby Bland which Gwen injected with a lot of soul and a smokey late night feel.
