The rarest record to grace the orange and black Tragar label comes courtesy of Sonia Rossman, the fourteen-year-old lead soloist for Atlanta’s Union Baptist church. Pressed in a promotional-only run of 100 in 1969, the single would be the second to last on the Jesse Jones-run label. Shortened to Sonia Ross on the single, her original composition “Let Me Be Free” opts for a faster tempo, while the Jones-authored ballad “Every Now And Then” puts her back in Dionne Warwick and Roberta Flack territory.
Pressed in an edition of 200, this 45 was only available at Numero Factory Outlet: Atlanta, on April 22nd 2017.
