EDWIN STARR - YOU'RE MY MELLOW


Edwin Starr had a brilliant run of singles for Detroit's RIC TIC label; RIC TIC would often hire the Motown band to perform on their sides; (it sure sounds like them on this stormer). Berry Gordy would catch wind of this, and fine the musicians. Eventually, Gordy bought out most of RIC TIC's contracts, including Edwin Starr's. This was his final single for RIC TIC, and easily one of his best sides.

from 1968...
