Today I am proud to present one of my favorite underused styles of music...the SOUL WALTZ! For those who don't know music theory, waltz time count is 1-2-3, 1-2-3 making for a unique syncopation unlike the more common 4/4 time (count 1-2-3-4, 1-2-3-4). This groove is one of the hardest hitting waltz time soul tracks I've ever heard and it's positively addicting.

The great Patti Drew was last heard on this blog as a member of the Drew-Vels, which consisted of herself, two sisters and Carlton Black. The Drew_vels, fantastic as they were, released only three singles, after which Patti struck out on her own and released some really great records, one of which was a well deserved hit ("Workin' On a Groovy Thing"). This was her first solo outing, originally released in 1965 on Quill records, then reissued in late 1966 by Capitol (which was also the home of the Drew-Vels).

from 1965...
