Alyson Williams - I Need Your Lovin' - (1989)

Def Jam Recordings ‎– 655143 2

Mick posted the 12" back in the day, but I have the CDS in all its 320 glory right here.

I won't rewrite the whole thing as he posted a lot of great info in his review so go peep the link above for more info on Alyson. 

The only difference between the two releases is this one contains a 7" edit of I Need your Lovin', wheras the 12" featured another track Make You Mine Tonight. Criminal really that this CD single is missing that - would it have hurt to have had four tracks? Ah well, them's the breaks!


I loved this track back then in '89 and still do. Jazzie B and Nellee Hooper as Soul II Soul were absolutely on fire at the time and bring their trademark UK street soul vibe to the track, really improving on the original. Dare I say it's the definitive version?

A small gripe though - I could never work out why it wasn't called Soul II Soul Mix rather than the vague names we got. Weird.

Anyway, enjoy this wicked lil' sexy ass tune. 

See you next time, soulistas!

    3. Hi Kymba, Thanks for the reply :) Will this blog be updating old files and uploading any new?

      Best wishes

    4. Hiya Ingo!

      Yes, I'll be doing my best to do just that.

      However, I only want to post 320 quality versions now, and I don't have access to Mick's library, so if I haven't got it I can't do it.

  5. I will be - I've been having a sabbatical for a while bit will be updating lots and adding plenty of new (old) stuff soon!.

    1. Amazing news, I'm looking forward to your posts :) Thank you

  6. OMG!!!! Your back... i know i am late... If you post up anymore let me know

    1. Frank! Yes, well and truly back, although life got in the way a bit and sucked up all my free time again.

      I'm hoping to get posting a couple of CDs this week but then I'm away next week - but normal service will resume.

      Hope you're fine and well, I was hoping you'd find us again.
