Surely A Contender For Best Record Title Ever?
Not only does this song by Ted Taylor have a great title it is also a rather good piece of Southern Soul. Released on Ronn records, a label that I have been actively seeking out singles on since I purchased The Northern Soul Of Jewel-Paula-Ronn a year or so back which can be purchased here.
The label is one of three which was run out of Shreveport, Louisiana by Stan Lewis a man who owned retail stores and decided to diversify into releasing some brilliant soul music, as you naturally would do. Buy the cd and read the full story, it's worth a read.
Ted Taylor started singing in the group the Cadets in the 1950s. He left the group and embarked on a solo career in the late 50. During the 60s he recorded for Okeh and Ronn. He died in a car crash in Louisiana in 1987 aged 53.
