Phew, my copy of this record is certainly well loved, isn't it? It's a surprise that it plays at all; surprisingly, it sounds pretty well! This is a pretty tough one to find, so instead of waiting for an upgraded copy to come my way, I'd rather share this lovely gem sooner rather than later.
Washington DC based soul renaissance man Van McCoy discovered the group and cut two 45's with them, this being the debut. According to Kendra Spotswood (a fantastic singer who worked steadily with McCoy) lead singer Francine Hurd rode with Herbie Fame and Van McCoy from New York City back to their home in DC, harmonizing all the way. During that fateful drive, Peaches & Herb were born, with Francine becoming the first Peaches!
As for today's record, the ladies harmonize heavenly, and the track is pure Van McCoy transcendence.
