Needle In A Haystack
I've Got A Feeling
From October of 1965, we present a blue-eyed soul singer from Wales named Tawny Reed. Tawny was a big voice in a little package. She was full of potential as this double sided gem proves, but remarkably she only managed two singles in her career. This disc was her first. Released in her native UK on Pye Records, this rare American release saw her get a release on the girl-group friendly Red Bird Records. The A-Side, Needle In A Haystack is a cover of The Velvelettes single. The Flip-Side is a cover of Baby Washington's number. I've Got A Feeling (published on this disc as I Got A Feeling). We think Tawny does a fine job on both.
Check out the vid of Tawny performing I've Got A Feeling. We're pretty sure the creepy kid in the sweater standing uncomfortably on her shoulder can today be found on some sort of sex offender data base somewhere in this world. Uncomfortable.
Until next time, we'll see you On The Flip-Side!
