Start of this weeks Soultreats! with this nice little swayer, just about the right pace for a monday morning.
Leon Haywood, although having some records that reached both the R&B and even the Pop charts, never really made it in a big way. But like many others in the soul fraternity it was hardly because of the quality of the music. His perhaps biggest hit, "Its Got To be Mellow" from 1967 shows off his smooth style in both producing and singing. As does our featured track today.
This song was released twice, slightly different versions they are to. First released on Capitol records in 1969 with a slightly higher tempo, and then on 20th Century in 1975. Written and produced by Haywood himself this is a very pleasent way to enjoy this weeks first cup of coffee.
