Another release from the top drawer of the Athens Of The North office. Penny Goodwin and her classic Portrait Of A Gemini LP track ‘Too Soon You’re Old’ is the latest to be placed onto 45. Essential listening! Release date 25th November 2016.
The Edinburgh based label released the only Penny Goodwin LP available to date – Portrait Of A Gemini – back on the 21st October. Vinyl copies are out but digital and CD are still available.
With the only previous 45 release of the her ‘Too Soon You’re Old’ track reaching the dizzying heights of a £250 price tag over Discogs, AOTN step in for those that haven’t got bottomless pockets but love a turntable singles listen. Backed up by Penny Goodwin’s version of Gil Scott Herons frantic jazz-soul number of Lady Jane & John Coltrane over on the B-side, the duo are examples of female-led jazz / funk crossover at it’s height, with Penny putting soul on a plate.
