When Donny Hathaway is listed as an arranger, the record is guaranteed not to disappoint; in fact, he turns in a downright brilliant pair of arrangements here. The a side is bubbly and infectious, while the b side is simply jaw drop gorgeous. There are moments when the ladies' harmonies may get a bit on the pitch-y side, but it only lends to the charm to my ears. I say this often, but it's another example of the traits of these records that I (and I'm assuming you) love, that keeps bringing me back; it's a sound that's just so damn REAL. Genuine music made by real people. Real heroes, as a matter of fact.
