THE BLOSSOMS - DEEP INTO MY HEART b/w GOOD, GOOD LOVIN'

Pure California girl group nirvana right here, folks!

"Deep Into My Heart" is another gem written by Baker Knight, who I featured here a few weeks back, and the equally great flip side "Good, Good Lovin'" was penned by the great duo of Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil. Darlene Love shows us once again why she is one of the most fabulous singers of all time here on both sides.

The history of this group is incredibly complex, and I prefer not to get too wordy on my posts so I'll leave it at this. While the Blossoms had a number of personnel changes since their 50's inception, the Blossoms who are most well known (appeared on the Shindig TV show) included Gloria Jones (who was out of the group by the time of this release) and (lead singer) Darlene Love (who also recorded with Phil Spector not only under her own name but as a backing singer and also a lead on cuts by The Crystals (who were actually the Blossoms under another name).


Of course The Blossoms also released "That's When The Tears Start"; perhaps the ultimate west coast girl group 45.

from 1967...
