Pure genius happens for the first time in this song at the 15 second mark; a brilliant hook that reappears throughout the song that I just can't get enough of!

The Apollas were a glorious group (who apparently are active again entertaining on cruise ships!) of southern women relocated to (I think) Los Angeles during their recording career. Most famous for their stunning cut "Mr Creator" (a past 45 of the day), this underrated track showcases their lovely vocal blend on a song that explodes out of the speakers. Extra credit goes to whoever plays the driving bass (mixed LOUD) that helps propel this record into the stratosphere.

Another incredible song from the pens of Ashford-Simpson-Armstead.

from 1966...

Hi Derek, I went to the archives to listen to Mr. Creator, but when I got to that record, there was no button to click for a listen. Is there a way to still hear some of your older postings when searching through the archives?
By your description and a fan's comment, I can't wait to hear it...sorry I missed it over a year ago, but I hadn't come across your site until a few months ago.
