Untrue, Unfaithful (That Was You)

Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Here we have a monster 45 from the UK (that somehow managed to get a release stateside on the Nashville-based Hickory label), Nita Rossi's "Untrue, Unfaithful (That Was You)".

This tune kicks off bass-heavy with a big beat and a killer flute line. Then it mellows out while Nita reminisces about their romance, and then the chorus kicks in with that mesmerizing flute-laden beat. This sequence repeats a few times with the addition of some strings to accentuate the mood.

Only problem: no details of Nita to be found on the internet. All I found out was that another one of her 45s ("Something to Give") has been adopted by the northern soul scene. But nothing about her. Details anyone?

I've just written about this song which was covered in Australia by Donna Gaye. http://www.poparchives.com.au/feature.php?id=1921
I've linked to your post, mainly for your nice label shot. You're right, there's not much info around on Nita. She was from Bournemouth, apparently. Oh, Italian background, but you probably guessed that.
