Sam’s Jams: Mary Clark – Take Me I’m Yours

From the highly sought after 12″ single from 1980

Singer Mary Clark released the song “Take Me I’m Yours” in 1980 as a single on the New York record label La Shawn. The 12” single became highly sought after by record collectors after DJ’s from the UK started playing the song in late night parties over the past decade. Since it’s revival, the song has been reissued by Soul Brother Records in London.
