I love the unstoppable groove of this record, amazing organ, and the lovely, soaring vocals.
The group played all of the instruments on the records they cut for Jay Pee Records between 68-69 (I have another that I'm bound to feature at some point). This type of thing seems unfathomable today, especially when one takes into account that a few of their records did well in Chicago.
The group was eventually signed to Perception Records, who released an LP and a few more singles from the group; however, they were replaced with studio musicians for those recordings. A pity, as a major part of the charm of their records is the heartfelt performance.
