The Lovelites: Certain Kind Of Lover/I Love You (Yes I Do) (Uni)

It took me a while to find a decent copy of this LP but it was worth the long wait. Produced by Clarence Johnson and Johnny Cameron, the album was recorded in Chicago on a well known California-based label, part of MCA records. Clarence Johnson cited the group as the best he had ever work with, their principal talent being Patti Hamilton. If you are into midtempo crossover, this is the Holy Grail. For Chicago soul lovers, "Certain Kind Of Lover" was written by Eugene Record (check also Diane Cunningham's superb version on Fontana).

One of my all time favs was also written by Eugene Records: Soulful Strut.


Don´t keep the faith - spread it.
