New Mexico musical stalwart, John Wagner, is best known in these parts as the producer of Freddie Chavez’s Northern Soul classic ‘They’ll Never Know Why’. Throughout his career, John produced various styles of music, flying the flag for the New Mexico sound.

His long time friend and collaborator, the singer, songwriter and multi instrumentalist David Nunez, released a couple of albums in the 70s with John on production duties. Prior to these LPs, a batch of unreleased songs were recorded and recently unearthed from John’s archives.

IZIPHO SOUL is honoured to play its small part in preserving the musical legacy of Albuquerque, New Mexico, with two songs freshly pressed on a 7” single!

STRANGE FEELING: a Latin, Funk / Soul styled opus that lures you in … then pow … into a full-blown salsa jam, before returning to the song’s theme for a dazzling finale. The flip, I SEE YOUR FACE: a haunting melody with thought-provoking lyrics.

Collectors and DJs … looking for something left field that’s previously unreleased and recorded circa fifty years ago? Then this may be the record for you! Mastered from the original studio tapes.Edition of 300 copies.
