THE FULLER BROTHERS - MOANIN' GROANIN' AND CRYIN' b/w (I WANT HER) BY MY SIDE

In a decade of great achievements, the invention of the male soul duo is one of the most exciting. I'm not one for testosterone fuelled competition for the most part, but something about two dudes duking it out on the microphone for alpha status created some of the most gut wrenching records of the decade.

While a good majority of the male duos were southern artists, The Fuller Brothers (yes they were real brothers named Erskin and Major Fuller) hailed from California. "Moanin'" is one of those jams that I just can't get enough of, and any time I hear a record with this kind of groove and excitement level it NEEDS to be part of my collection. If THAT wasn't great enough, the flip side is a heart wrenching ballad in the southern soul style.

DAMN this record is bloody great.

from 1967...

TWO smashing sides! Thanks for the introduction. Are they the same Fuller Brothers who did Time's a Wasting'? Marie
