Gwen Owens, Leavin' It All up to You

Gwen Owens is a relatively new discovery for me. Well, when I say 'discovery' I probably mean that she's someone I stumbled over again while leafing through some of my lesser-known Northern Soul tracks — and thought I ought to dig a little deeper. “Lies” and “Just Say You're Wanted and Needed” were the tracks I stumbled over. The rest of the selection is largely from digging around on YouTube. It turns out that she's a Detroit native who sang alongside some pretty big hitters in the late 60s and early 70s. The 1970 selection keeps the Soul theme going. “I'm Leaving It Up To You” is a bit of old schlock, of the kind I like to indulge from time to time. Don & Dewey's version is the original. Dale & Grace's 1963 release is the 'hit' that popularised it. It's Spanish Friday.
