THELMA JONES - STRONGER b/w NEVER LEAVE ME


Thelma Jones was originally from Fayetteville, NC (with strong roots in gospel music and singing at her local church) and through her husband was relocated to NYC where she began cutting records (of which this is her first).

This song has a strong gospel influence (dig the backing vocals) within a secular music context. Great stuff! "Never Leave Me" is an equally great deep cut with some incredibly emotive singing from Thelma.

from 1967...

Thank you! It's great when you share the A & B sides of a 45. And what a strong pair of tunes! Thelma Jones is great.
