Cecil Shaw is still famous in the UK Northern Soul scene, and this 1973 gem shows why. The song is “This I’ve Gotta See.” It was written by Marshall McQueen and Bill Williams Jr. It was produced by Billy Davis Jr. and Marshall McQueen. It was arranged by Marshall, McQueen, and Ed Redman. The song came out on the Bil-Mar label with distribution by T.K. Productions. The sound is funky, with a falsetto croon that could crack a crystal vase, and fuse it back together like a broken heart. Check out the album, the song, and its listing in the Spins and Sales section of Record World magazine from June 16, 1973.
