Ain't nobody - Rufus and Chaka Khan

'Ain't nobody' was recorded as a bonus studio track on Rufus & Chaka Khan's live album 'Stompin' at the Savoy'. It was released as a single and reached no. 8 in the UK singles chart and no. 29 in the Dutch top 40. It has become one of Khan's best-known and most-played songs. In 1989, she released a remix of this track as a single, but that version was a lot weaker than the original, which has become an R&B/Soul standard.

I went looking for this single in the late nineties, suddenly remembering how I liked it a decade earlier. I still remember asking for it at Beanos in 1997, but it was sold out. I went back there a year later - while still searching for it in the mean time - and... there it was.

My collection: 7" single no. 2988
Found: Beanos, East Croydon, London, May 27, 1998
Cost: 2 pounds
Tracks: 'Ain't nobody'
