THERE'S GONNA BE A SHOWDOWN * DENNA JOHNSON & RICKY DAVIS * SIMPSON 101 * USA
Not the same song as Archie Bell's, but has the same intro as Ben E. Kings Stand By Me, this dynamic Soul ballad from this M/F duo is lifted even more by a prominent electric organ in the mix. There's Gonna Be A Showdown is the B side to an up-tempo cut Who Me' Yeh You! which is very much in the Charlie & Inez Fox / Ike & Tina Turner mould, with a riff that sounds very much like I'm Gonna Send You Back To Georgia.
