Going Back To The Deep Soul Well

Gloria Walker - Walking With My New Love

Gloria Walker is best known for the deep soul classic "Talking About My Baby" (a monologue-heavy reworking of "I'd Rather Go Blind") on Flaming Arrow (funk fans prefer the flip, "The Gallop" by The Chevelles) and the funky 45 "Papa's Got The Wagon," one of the few King-distributed People singles. "Walking With My New Love" was the natural follow-up to the hit "Talking About My Baby," and here Walker mixes the "rap" of her earlier hit with singing, and it's a powerful, if derivative, tune.
