LINDA FOREMAN: DAYS ARE EMPTY, NIGHTS ARE TOO

Linda Foreman: If I Ever Needed You Darling (Public!, 197?, 7″)

Deep soul single.

Cool Chris had a few stock copies of this and suggested I cop. I’m more on a sweet (vs. deep) soul kick but something about the haunting quality of Foreman’s vocals here really stuck with me. Couldn’t find much about her; this seems to be the only single she ever released but even though Public! was based out of Hollywood, I’m guessing Foreman’s actually from Indianapolis since her arranger Ira Raibon, producer Jim Horton and songwriter James Belmore all have Indy soul connections (via the Fabulous Souls and Vanguards).

    At the time Linda, was my girlfriend and for 3 years had been the featured vocalist in my band “The Roadrunners”, an 8 piece soul band from Oceanside that included some of most outstanding athletic talent in San Diego County. James Belmore, was originally from Chicago and had married my first cousin while he was stationed at Camp Pendleton. I was on my musical journey, I was 18 and the head of A&R at Matazz Music in Hollywood and trying to bring them along with me.
