THE LOVETTES - I NEED A GUY


Sounding very much like a Chicago group/ production, this is the Lovettes out of Jersey City, New Jersey in a record recorded in New York City. To my ears, this song screams HIT RECORD but alas, that wasn't the case...This is the Lovettes third and final 45, as all four singers left the music business after this record was cut.

Other than the obviously gorgeous, yearning vocals, I'm a huge fan of just about any record with prominent vibraphone like this; so gorgeous!

from 1967...

I'm a fan of that vibraphone sound too. Perfect music to play on a rainy day.

Superb!

Great sound, but it screams 'Hit Song' because it was... for Jackie Ross. I'd say it is at least 75% lifted from 'Selfish One'
