MATTIE MOULTRIE - THAT'S HOW STRONG MY LOVE IS


This song has one of the most extraordinary vocal performances I have ever heard. Amazing that this particular record can be heard at all (look at the condition of the label), but, as is so often the case with a 60's pressed 45, they can survive years of abuse, get deep cleaned and sound pretty darned good.

Mattie's vocal performance is gospel influenced for sure (she has been a script writer and gospel singer for a number of years), and the performance simply soars into an orgasmic crescendo of passion and power.

from 1966...

Wow.. just listened to this 6 times in a row.. amazing record. (Is the b-side playable and any where near as good?) Been meaning to say thanks for all the amazing tunes you keep posting. Keep them coming!

This song is on a compilation called Lost Soul. It was put by Columbia in the 1980's. What a beautiful song.

Great ballad, I'm only into ballads so it's not often (I believe this is the first time)I'm asking for a song since you stopped the direct downloads. But I sure would like to receive this one, if you don't mind.
thanks in advance
Ben

It's a great song and it's always exciting to hear another good version of it (which this def. is)

I got to see the Stones play it live with Solomon Burke about 6 or 7 years ago in L.A. It blew me away.

The Creation also did a nice cover of it.
