(5% DISCOUNT THRU 9-24-21) The Hesitations' album continued the hip 60s dance tracks of 'Soul Superman' with numbers such as 'She Won't Come Back', 'You Can't By Pass Love' and 'That's What Love Is' - the backing track of which would be reused on Eddie Parker's 'I'm Gone' 45 and be acknowledged as a pinnacle of Northern Soul. Every track has its admirers, the mid-tempo 'I'll Be Right There', 'Wait A Minute' and 'You'll Never Know' in particular, but the three subsequent singles taken from the album failed to chart and the LP was forgotten - until UK 60s soul connoisseurs later acclaimed it as a classic of the genre. Freddy Butler was a big-voiced solo act who had already recorded for Detroit labels M&M, Samo, Starmaker and Wheelsville. The only single from this LP, 'There Was A Time', was recorded at United Sound studios in September 1966 and though it failed to chart, the project went ahead. There was more emphasis on big ballads such as 'They Say I'm Afraid (Of Losing You)' and 'Just Because You've Been Hurt', but the sound is still unmistakably Pied Piper, evident in the slick mid-tempo rhythms of 'I Like Your Style', 'Deserted' and 'You'd Better Get Hip Girl'. The most famous track was the bouncy 'That's When I Need You', which was played at the UK's big Northern Soul all-nighters in the 70s when it was bootlegged onto a 45 despite having only legitimately been an LP selection.
