Roger (1987) I Want To Be Your Man 12″ Promo

Very Brief:
Here’s a nice little promo 12″ from Roger Troutman that I stumbled across in a record bin once upon a time. I had no idea of its existence prior to finding it. It features the Holiday Mix of his 1987 #1 R&B hit “I Want To Be Your Man” and includes “Please Come Home For Christmas” on the flip side. A perfect little Christmas nugget I have been saving just for this occasion. I hope you enjoy.

The Fun-family and I would like to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I’m going to take a break from posting for the next week while I get some records ripped and prepared for 2017. New posts will resume on Monday, January 2nd. Until then, enjoy and get it on!
