Getting things going this month with a top 3 R&B smash from 1967 from the doo-wop group that our AOM helped found in 1955 along with Ray Davis, Calvin Simon, Fuzzy Haskins and Grady Thomas. You can definitely hear the influence that the Motown Machine had on the production of this track, but also check out some things in the mix that would be part of the shape of funk to come… listen to the high octave female vocal that doubles on the chorus, this is a device that will be used to great effect in the funk.
