This is one of those records that I'll put on and wonder how and why it wasn't a massive hit. Everything about this record is perfect, from the catchy song to the excellent vocals and generally uplifting feeling.
Produced and arranged by Ed Townsend (well known for his work on Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On" among hundreds of other records), I am unsure about where this record was recorded. Townsend (I believe) was working in Memphis around this time, but something about this record says Los Angeles to me. If you know for sure, please write!
