MARVIN SMITH - WHO WILL DO YOUR RUNNING NOW b/w YOU'RE REALLY SOMETHING SADIE


Just take a listen to the trumpet line that comes into this song at about :45. Pure genius, pure class and the epitome of Chicago soul.

Let's not forget Marvin Smith's incredible vocal (Marvin was also the lead singer of The Artistics, one of the finest groups not only from Chicago but anywhere, in fact) on this excellent song from the pen of Curtis Mayfield. I could string together a chain of adjectives and none could completely describe the greatness of Curtis.

The b-side ain't too shabby either. I'm thankful every day that there is music this superb to enjoy.

from 1969...
