THE DE VONS - SOMEONE TO TREAT ME (THE WAY YOU USE TO)
It looks like this glorious group only cut one other 45 (which I haven't heard) which is a shame because they are a glorious last gasp of the classic girl group sound, coming in at a time when funk was the dominant force on the horizon. Perhaps an example of too much too late? Regardless, this is an absolutely amazing song with stellar vocals. Produced by the Godfather himself, james Brown!
And if you live in the bay area, SHAGG is among us TONIGHT!!!
