THE CONTINENTAL 4 - THE WAY I LOVE YOU


Still, after all the time I've spent studying records and the history of groups it blows my mind to know that a group containing this much talent never scored much in the way of national chart action.

On this debut recording from Philadelphia-area group The Continental 4, the vocalist show off an extraordinary blend, led by smooth falsetto singer Freddie Kelly. While some of the other falsetto led groups of the era can be a bit cloying, the Continental 4 were full of earthy richness that oozes pure soul.

Good way to start off the year, I'd say!

from 1970...

Ah, Bobby Martin arranged this. I wondered why it sounded so much like a Gamble-Huff song.
