Uptown Festival
Released by Shalamar in 1977 on the Soul Train label. This compilation song is
Shalamars tribute to the Motown sound. Tab by bass50611. Tab written in standard
tune but note original recording is a semitone sharp. I de-tuned my copy into
standard tune so as to use open string fills. Very long song about 9 minutes
and my tab is not exact as original in some places but it does fit and I hope
you really enjoy playing it. Comments is bass254@btinternet.com
