In 1970 Ruby Stackhouse, better known as Ruby Andrews, released her first full-length album, Everybody Saw You. Issued on Ric Williams’ US soul label, Zodiac Records, this LP offered up a delicious dish of sweet, sweet soul and if you ever have a craving for some sonic sunshine, look no further than this!
The album has since gone on to near-legendary status as one of the great lost soul albums of the early 1970’s and it’s obvious to see the impeccable appeal if you’ve ever had the pleasure of hearing it? Take a peek at the bottom of this post if you haven’t heard this little gem!
You Can Run But You Can’t Hide is a full-on passionate affair and I don’t fancy the chances of the object of Ruby’s desire escaping anytime soon…but would you want to? She sounds pretty determined and you’d be a fool to refuse such intense heart-fire!
It’s a great track and was also released as a single in 1968, again on Zodiac Records. This 45 offers a far more fluffier b-side with Wonderful Night, which is pleasant enough, but I do prefer her more intense songs! Enjoy!
