Not much of a label to look at today, my copy is quite worn as you can see. However, as always, it´s what´s in the groove that counts, and they don´t come much better than this. A terrific two-sider on King records released in 1967 it is Shirley´s only effort on the Cincinatti label. The other side "That´s How Long I´m Gonna Love You" is also very good but "Why Am I Crying" is problably a tad more soulful, set at a slower pace that it is. Shirley was obviously a very talented singer and she had releases on other labels as well like Calla, Blue Rock, Smash and Giant.
