Dave Mason: “Waitin’ On You” (1971)

Kronomyth 1.4: IF DAVE DIDN’T, ERIC WOOD. It appears Blue Thumb waited a little while before pulling the trigger on a third single from Alone Together, “Waitin’ On You.” It’s a solid R&B track done in the style of the Stones/Faces with some great backing vocals and a killer organ. The B side is a calmer acoustic song, the likes of which you’ll find on all Dave Mason albums. Both songs are identical to the original album versions, so it’s not a particularly collectible single. I have to say, I’m baffled as to why Blue Thumb didn’t release “Shouldn’t Have Took More Than You Gave” or “Sad And Deep As You” as singles before this.

Original 7-inch single version
A1. Waitin’ On You (Dave Mason) (3:05)
B1. Just A Song (Dave Mason) (2:59)

The Players
I got nothing, since the album (Alone Together) didn’t provide track-by-track credits. I can tell you that Tommy LiPuma produced both songs and that he regards the album as one of his best as a producer. It’s a free site, so you take what you get.

Originally released on 7-inch single in January 1971 in the US (Blue Thumb, 7122).
