STEVE MANCHA - FRIDAY NIGHT b/w MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY


Born Clyde Wilson (he wrote a few tunes for Motown under his real name, including the amazing "Number One In Your Heart" as performed by the Monitors), producer Don Davis suggested that the name Steve Mancha would be more commercially viable.

"Steve Mancha" went on to become a Detroit soul legend, even though his records never became national hits.

Today's entry is one of those magical records where the song, arrangement and performance all become larger than life. The B-side is basically the same track but with different lyrics that tie into the a-side. Quite cool indeed.

from 1967...
