Foundation style, Dry Up Your Tears -

Ever since hearing that Tinga Stewart cut of 'Dry Up Your Tears' on a Tubby's rhythm, released via Firehouse (also in stock here) - we've been huge fans of this vocal.
There's a certain sweetness in amongst the sadness of the lyrics, an uplifting, heartfelt song that both Bruce Ruffin and Tinga Stewart deliver in fine style.

This Bruce Ruffin cut was made before the digital explosion happened in the 80's, a predecessor to the Tinga Stewart cut - this is slow, soulful rocksteady business on the Beverley's imprint, produced by Leslie Kong.

Flip it for an upbeat number, 'Not Long Now' is on the b-side... But really, that Dry Up Your Tears cut is enough to satisfy... A lovely disc.
