A Good Lovin°«
B We Still Could Be Together

The first official reissue of °∆Good Lovin°«°« – a modern soul dancer with a killer groove, heavy low-end, delectable string & horn trade-offs and the husky tones of the inimitable Al Mason, that blew up on the scene in 1980 and now commands eye watering prices between collectors. This dinked 7 inch comes backed with °∆We Still Could Be Together°« off the original promo 12 Inch, with both tracks fully remastered and officially licensed for the first time since its original release. °∆Good Lovin°«°« stormed dancefloors back in the early °∆80s taking Al°«s undeniable, raspy vocal prowess and stirring it up with an energetic combination of funk guitars, full frontal basslines, on-point harmonies and a perfectly arranged string and brass section. It°«s been a rare treasure on the second-hand market with original copies trading hands for £400 so an official reissue will be music to many an ear. The B side, °∆We Still Could Be Together°«, is an emotive ballad filled to the brim with Mason°«s tangible passion alongside smoky pianos, cinematic strings and velvety backing vocals. A slow stepper with a bittersweet message behind it.
