YOU THREW A LUCKY PUNCH * GENE CHANDLER * VEE JAY 468 * USA
Similar to the proposition put forward by Isaiah Berlin that 'belief is formed by habit', it is often, but not always, the case that it is the side of disc heard first that influences preference. As with the above B side, it was this track featured on the Stateside album Oldies R&B I owned and played many times before getting to hear the next side Rainbow that shaped my liking. The single was issued as his second UK release, the follow up to Duke Of Earl, it sold poorly and as a consequence has always been hard to find.
