Lord Large featuring Dean Parrish: Left, Right & Centre Release 7th Aug
Left, Right & Centre was written by Paul Weller when he was 15. It appeared on a early Jam demo, but it eventually ended up in the Lord Large production room via Wigan Casino DJ/founder Russ Winstanley, Acid Jazz?s Eddie Piller, and Ocean Colour Scene/Weller guitarist, Steve Cradock. Cradock is one of several guest musicians on the track, which also includes Corduroy bassist, Richard Searle, and dance anthem singer, Andrea Britton. The main vocal on this track is by American star Dean Parrish, whose song ?I?m on my way? was an early smash on the Northern scene, and went on to become the biggest ever selling Northern Soul 45?. Left, Right & Centre features on the Lord Large album, The Lord?s First XI, which is scheduled for release late September. The album also benefits from the talents of other featured singers such as Squeeze?s Glenn Tilbrook, Linda Lewis, The Peddlers? Roy Phillips, Freakpower?s Ashley Slater, and The Foundations? Clem Curtis, singer of last year?s Lord Large northern-soul classic, Stuck In A Wind-Up.
