LOVES RECIPE B/W WIVES GET LONELY TOO
THE NUMERO GROUP
Previously unreleased, this 1972 pair of Calvin Harris’ masterfully crafted Earl Wiley-produced sweet soul demos might’ve stayed totally unknown, if it weren’t for Ed Cody’s devious forethought.
An engineer at Chicago’s Stereosonic facility, Cody duped himself a submaster reference copy of the complete session. In ’73, Wiley heard 'Love Won’t Pay The Bills' on 45 - credited to a group called Elevation - & instantly recognised the Cody-engineered track as his own. Nearly 40 years later, through Numero Group research into Stereosonic, Cody & Wiley, a cache of Cody masters presented themselves for new evaluation. The alternately buoyant & sobering odes to domesticity reproduced here finally grant honey-voiced Harris & the talented Wiley their long-deserved due.
