Lucille Mathis & Holly St. James - I'm Not Your Regular Women/That's Not Love
Lucille Mathis was a two-release mystery on the Abet label back in 1968.
‘I’m Not Your Regular Woman’ is a girl power anthem that was way ahead of its time.
The flipside of ‘Am I Asking Too Much’, the track is a stormer powered by roll-heavy drums and some great brass stings and goes for around £300 these days.
Cut with one of three singles by Holly St James (real name Lorraine Di Bonaventura) that also arrived in 1968.
‘That’s Not love’ is an enormous echoey Spectoresque wall-of-sound that broods with incisive string chops and Holly’s groovy mid ‘60s vocal, a soul eruption that simmers with emotion.
A £40 price tag for the original.
Both sides remastered for dancefloor penetration.
