The reason I asked David to post it was because Eugene Davis wrote it - which Davis is that? The "Billy The Kid" one?
Anyone know anything about Flaming Arrow?
Best wishes, Graham

re flaming arrow: i suspect that it was part of the magic city/burt/crow family of labels. lots of good singles on the label, including several by gloria walker.

Crow was distributed by Flaming Arrow, and at least one song--Jumpin' With Popeye--appears on both labels. (Note that there are two completely different instrumentals on Crow with this title. The one that also appears on Flaming Arrow is the funk one that is the B-side of James Havior's great Northern piece, Girl, Girl, Girl).

38 - Nancy Butts - Go On To Her/Let Me Be Free
? - Gloria Walker - Talking About My Baby

Here's a look at the Crow label. Note that I got the words Father and Mother reversed in my discographic notes above.

I Also have this listed on Flaming Arrow, with a date of 1968;
C-50. J Star - Hot Pants/Sweet Sweet Thing
I can't remember where I got this info' from though. Maybe it's on Crow!
Wasn't the Burt label issued out of Memphis?
