A fantastic example of 60s R&B/Northern Soul - the record tells the story of a hard bitten life working on a cotton field set to the most extraordinarily funky beat. The track has a very original theme and execution that draws the listener in. Uplifting and very danceable. a tale of perseverance.
Little is known about the journey of Otis Lee as an artist. Originally released on the Quaint record label (Quaint 001) it appears that Otis Lee had a limited recording career. The record was available for around £10 on the Northern Soul scene in the late 70s and early 80s but the limited amount of copies have entered collections and the status of this record has exploded over the years meaning the few remaining copies in circulation now fetch between £750 and £1000.
