Chicago music man Mel London had a long and distinguished time in the music biz. Best known for his blues songs and productions I guess but he also recorded some fine music in the 60s especially when R & B began to morph into soul. This 45 comes from that period and it deserves to be better known. The uptempo “You Won’t Be Needing Me No More” is a really good workout – classic Windy City moving music. So You’re Leaving is slower paced but much more intense thanks to Eddie’s gruff defiance. You gotta love that Hammond B3 behind him.
So you’re leaving / You won’t be needing me no more ~ MEL-LON 1005 (early 60s)
