Seemingly the only single released by Arnold Blair, and it's one of the greatest masterpieces of '70's Chicago soul; an absolutely perfect record that is guaranteed to make you feel good all over.
Producer (and co-writer) LeRoy Hutson is best known for his replacement of Curtis Mayfield in the Impressions in 1971. On his own, LeRoy also cut another of the great 70's Chicago soul singles: "All Because Of You" (a past 45 of the day).
One wonders what could have possibly happened to Arnold Blair? The man's talent shines through so brightly on this incredible record, and it's so sad that this was his only shot on wax.
