Former Adorables member Betty Winston recorded a number of solo songs during the 1960s, several of which were later released on the Grapevine label in the 1970s. Arguably the most potent of all these songs, the Richard 'Popcorn' Wylie produced "Spellbound", eventually appeared on the Talk Of The Grapevine compilation. Happily, Soul Junction has finally secured the rights to the track, and here presents it on 7" for the first time. It's a wonderful chunk of heartfelt Detroit soul, with Winston's fellow Adorables members Pat and Diane Lewis, and sister Jackie Winston, providing superb backing vocals. Thrillingly, this release also includes the previously unissued instrumental version, which shines a light on Wylie's brilliant production.
