Here's a great example of a song that is taken over the edge of mediocrity by a few elements of the arrangement- firstly, Barbara and Brenda's vocals are superb! Secondly (and perhaps most unique) is the incredibly cool and groovin' baritone guitar part that drives the song along.
Composed of Barbara Gaskins & niece Brenda Gaskins, this group released a half dozen or so 45's before Brenda, burned by the music business, quit. Barbara continued on, playing guitar for Inez & Charlie Foxx and eventually ending up in disco group Ecstasy, Passion & Pain. A google search reveals she is still playing guitar and singing professionally.
