Just got back in from the shops dripping wet as the Autumn rains appear to have begun after such fine weather for the last couple of weeks. As I put the key in the door, I suddenly recalled the above 45 and though I feel totally content in my love life the thought of the rain cascading down on me had me humming the tune. So I went straight upstairs and put it on the turntable.
The 45 is a truly uplifting sound which received spins on the rare soul scene back in the 70's though I haven't heard it played for an age. A Lou Courtney composition with James Ingram of the Ingram Family on lead vocals, the group also recorded 2 others for All Platinum and two for Mainstream according to Soul Harmony Singles Book.
You can find the B-side Let Me Keep On Walking which is more like the Moments on a great CD compiled by Dave Cole, the editor of In The Basement, on a CD for Sequel called Basement tracks. I like this side but Rain has so memories for me because it was hammered on my old record player in my bedroom in the 70's where I listened to new 45s with my then girlfriend Christine.
