  1. This one hits the spot for me. I know Zill;a Mays as an R&B/Blues singer, but this is the first Soul number I’ve heard her sing. Her powerful pipes suit it well.

    1. Yes Ian…Seems like many R&B/Blues singers struggled in the 60’s. They made a comeback in the late 60’s early 70’s. Of course there were exceptions especially over here. Some Chess pieces, Atlantic cuts and George Leaners Onederful/M-pac stable. But the ‘sound of the 60’s seems to have been dominated by the soul at least up until 67/8.
