Until I did a little bit of research this morning to write up todays entry, I just assumed that this was the Los Angeles area group with the same name that recorded "Confessin' A Feeling" (a past 45 of the day). It's not! This is a group from Cleveland, OH that formed roughly around the same time and were eventually tapped by James Brown to become a part of his People Records family of soul.

When the west coast SSW began touring the underground oldies circuit in the mid 90's, legal action from the midwest group followed suit. However, it was determined that the west coast group has legal rights to the name (odd, as the midwest group released a record first).

Anyhow, this is a sublime side of SWEET soul; harmony laden with a beautiful arrangement and that incredible opening electric piano hook.

from 1973...
