This group seems to have released a few records, but I can't find much in the way of biographical info on them (although I was happy to see that two members are performing in a vocal group together currently). This track appears to be the b-side; the other side is good and I almost featured it as well (it's a mid-tempo sweet soul track) but in the interest of conserving my precious bandwidth had to keep it off. BUT, this swingin' little number is somethin' else!

from 1967...

Great choice Derek, and once again a new one on me! Although one couldn't guess from listening, label evidence suggests this is a New Orleans recording, as the producers are renowned N.O. musicians cornettist Melvin Lastie and pianist James Booker. They were obviously aiming at an uptown dance-soul sound with the Capitols' "Cool Jerk" as inspiration, which dates the single squarely from 1966. Happy to be contradicted if anybody knows different!

Would this be the same group that recorded "Coffee and Donuts" on Specialty 695 ?

I think it's a the same group, Roger!

Thank you for this!

I don't suppose anyone has a copy of "Coffee & Donuts" to share?
