Duane Allman was suspected to play on track 1.
Both tracks are also released on the CD 'Spencer
Wiggins: Feed The Flame: The Fame And XL Recordings' (Ace Records Ltd. / Kent
Soul (UK), CDKEND 340, 2010)
According to the liner notes of this CD Spencer Wiggings recorded nine masters at three different sessions specifically for Fame between October 1969 and early 1971. "Double Lovin' " and "I'd Rather Go Blind" are amongst these nine tracks. But at the time of these sessions Duane was not recording at Fame anymore.
According to the liner notes of the CD 'Spencer Wiggins
- The Goldwax Years' (Ace Records /Kent Soul, CDKEND 262, UK, 2006) Spencer
Wiggins signed to Fame Records in 1969, which only put two 45s out on this
artist (Fame 1463 and Fame 1470).
One of the tracks ('Love Me Tonight', Fame 1463) was recorded by Goldwax Records and sold to Fame, but the other three tracks on these 45s ('Love Machine', 'Double Lovin'' and 'I'd Rather Go Blind') were recorded in one visit to Fame in Muscle Shoals, AL.
In an article about Spencer Wiggins, published in the UK
magazine 'In The Basement' (Issue no. 27, August-October 2002) the following
unissued Fame masters are mentioned:
'Hit And Run', 'Holding On [To A Dying Love]', 'I'm At The Breaking Point', 'Make Me Your's', 'Ooh Be Ooh Be Doo', 'This Love Is Gonna Be True' and 'This Time'.
['This Love Is Gonna Be True' and 'This Time' are the same song, aka 'Our Love Will Be True'].
All these unreleased tracks were finally released in 2010 on the CD 'Spencer Wiggins: Feed The Flame: The Fame And XL Recordings' (Ace Records Ltd. / Kent Soul (UK), CDKEND 340, 2010)
