RAY & DAVE - WRONG WRONG WRONG
There's plenty of serendipity involved in today's entry. While I was researching this record (which I love but knew nothing about) I came across some very valuable info here. Not only was I happy to see some info that related this record to Jimmy Dobbins (I featured his "Little Miss Perfect" on this blog a few years back- turns out Ray & Dave sing the harmonies on THAT record), but also that the post linked back to MY blog and the Jimmy Dobbins post!
As for the record, it's yet another one of those records from what is possibly my favorite soul city; Chicago. While it was a local hit, for some reason it never broke through nationally. A travesty, as the record has it all; strong hooks, great lyrics, creative arrangement, and those heavenly voices of Ray & Dave.
As this is Thanksgiving week, I will say it again- I am so thankful that music like this was made and that we have ears to hear it.
