This Ohio based group (who later became one of the bastions of the Philly Soul scene) released many great 45's in the 60's, and this one is my favorite by far. From the gorgeous vocals to the uplifting groove, this sound is the epitome of '60's soul, and in my opinion it simply does not get any better than this.
A typical formula for soul 45's in the 60's seemed to have been a ballad on one side (usually the a side) with the b side being a dancer...It's a rare treat when both sides are uptempo as we have here. Both sides are absolutely gloriously uptempo soul.
