One of the original members of the legendary soul group The Falcons (together with Eddie Floyd and Wilson Pickett) and the writer of one of most known tracks in soul music, "Mustang Sally", Mack Rice did not have a successful solo career of his own. The Falcons had a big hit with "I Found A Love" in the early sixties but the group soon split up and went their separate ways. Sadly this only worked out well for two of the groups three members. Both Pickett and Floyd enjoyed long and fruitful careers as artists but Rice never really got the break he deserved. Obviously a talented singer and songwriter it is somewhat typical for his fortune that his own track"Mustang Sally" was a bigger hit for Wilson Pickett than it was for Rice himself.
This was released in 1962, just after The (original) Falcons had split up.
