As is the modern way, two of 2019’s early big soul singles have just been given the remix treatment.

First up is a re-work of MARC STAGGERS’ Crazy About Your Love’. The original mix burst out at the end of January and immediately scaled the soul charts – understandable… it’s easy on the ear and Mr S’s superb vocal served to remind us of what a consummate artist he is… in the style and manner of dear Luther Vandross. Now you can enjoy the tune again in a classy Nigel Lowis mix…. smooth and very sophisticated, it’s a little more up-tempo than the original mix and bodes well for the parent album, ‘Let’s Go Out Tonight’ which is due very soon on Mar-Reg Music.

Randy Hall’s ‘How Do You Want Your Love’ was another early 2019 front runner. The Chicago guitarist and singer’s tune was a steady, pleading R&B groove and the snappy ‘Steppers Mix’ won lots of plays. ‘How Do You Want Your Love’ is available again … this time in a “Spanish” mix – obvious, yes… it offers lashings of Latino flavour and it’s out now.
