“Quickly turning into the hottest dance record of the year.”
Pickett had such a commanding, soulful voice. I’m surprised this catchy single didn’t place quite a bit higher on the Hot 100. I suppose the tune was a bit anachronistic and it does sound like it could just as easily been released in ’68 or ’69. Have a listen.
