Eddie Kendricks: Girl, You Need a Change of Mind

From People, Hold On (Motown, 1972)

I have to make this brief since I’m about to go incognito for a few days. I’ll craft a more detailed Eddie Kendricks post later on this year, but here’s the short version: Kendricks isn’t quite unsung but I don’t think he gets the same due as other soul singers from the 1970s. Kendricks’ material ranks as high as anything else I know, including Gaye and Mayfield.

People, Hold On is unquestionably, in my mind, one of the best soul albums of the 1970s. Hands-down. Practically the whole LP is worth showcasing but I’ll just hit you with one right now: “Girl, You Need a Change of Mind”.

Enjoy the weekend everyone.
