The Mandells: Think Back (Trans World, 196?, 7″)
Soul single out of Chicago.
It’s all about this. This song is like an encapsulation of my favorite everythings about soul. If you don’t find yourself gripping your fists, closing your eyes and belting out the chorus every time it swings around, there’s no hope for you.
All praise due Ruben Molina of the Southern Soul Spinners who was the first person to play this for me during the show we did together on The Melting Pot. Been fiending for it since. Only took 1.5 years!
