Listen: The Glory Of Love / Don BryantDonBryantGlory.mp3

Attempting to be the owner of a Hi Records complete singles library has been somewhat of a frustration given that, like every label, some titles flopped quickly, occasionally just as they were being released within the company itself. Finding copies of those records gets pretty dicey.

But equally, it can be a lot of fun, especially when you find one out of the clear blue.

Don Bryant grabbed my ear on first listen, having a very Otis Redding similarity, both vocally and in song choice – all in a positive way. The one last Hi release of his I didn’t have, ‘The Glory Of Love’, made it’s way into my life a week or two back in Cleveland at the record shop inside the Beachland Ballroom. Visit it regularly if you’re lucky enough to be in the area.
