 mickey rat,

Your commentary on this one is spot on. I think Capitol on this one did Sound Stage 7 better in fact. What a cooker of an A side, awesome horn section and cooking rhythm section anchoring a very soulful vocal. A vastly underrated record. And the B side is equally as fine. Makes me want her other Capitol 45 singles real bad. The definitive soul arrangement of a country tune and the only other singer who did this kind of song that well would be Candi Staton on Fame. Everyone reading our comments, please seek out a copy and spin it. You won't be sorry. Every time I spin this one on Soul Night, the dance floor action heats up.

 Fabulous record, an all-time soul great IMO. Capitol did the Sound Stage 7 thing here and did a soul arrangement of a country song. Flip was terrific too. Producer Wayne Shuler I think was the son of Eddie Shuler of Goldband Records (wonderful label!) in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Wayne relocated to Los Angeles and produced a few hits for people like Joe South, but also produced West Coast sessions for Louisiana ex-pats like Elton Anderson.
