Here's a word on how this 45 came about!

Top Latin Musician and DJ Snowboy & I have been great friends for over 20 years.It was while Snowboy was DJ'ing at my 30th birthday party that he heard my mate's Bob Batterbee & Russell Edwards playing in their duo called "R&B".Snowboy was struck by Bob's powerful Soulful vocals & asked him to sing on his album M.F.O.S (Many Faces Of Snowboy)back in 1996.Bob also sings on "Thing's Will Be Alright" from that album.I recently asked Snowboy if he thought the track would make a good 45 & we agreed to release it! So after I edited the track to make a shorter version than the one that appears on the album we finally bring it to you!! Here's what Bob said on his Myspace page.
Andy Davies.

"Soul was the first music that really excited me and inspired me to sing. I then started collecting records; we had John Anderson in King's Lynn so we were in the right place, but apart from Soul Bowl - King's Lynn was the wrong place for me. I spent years singing my nuts off here and being appreciated by many really great local people, but not getting heard by anyone else. I did have a bit of a break in the 90's when my old friend Andy Davies put me in touch with the great Snowboy who used me on "Where is The Love", a great track inspired by 70's soul, and I got to record and work with some great musicians but I won't name drop. I've recorded a few things on small labels but nothing major but all quality I think, then had a break from music from about 1998 to concentrate on family and career, then moved to Australia for a while and recorded some stuff with John Young on Shock Records. Recently have been doing more with the big band/jazz and soul bands as well as hooking up with Shanghai based producer Simon Whitfield who does mainly T.V ads out there. My main "project" at the moment is with Northern Soul band "the Soft Tone Needles" back home in the Fens"
