The Pretenders - It´s Everything About You (That I Love) - Carnival

70s SoulPosted by Martin Mon, November 02, 2009 17:44:55

The Pretenders was the last major act on Joe Evans´ Carnival label. They released eight singles on the New Jersey label in the early 70s, having almost a monopoly on the labels output for a few years. The group was a mixed quartet with three men: Eugene Cohen, Neil Page and Harry Simpkins as well as a Patricia Tandy who shared the leads together with Page. She had replaced Valerie Scott who´d been with the group on their first release, their 1970 rendition of The Manhattans "I Wanna Be" which was originally released in 1964 on Carnival # 507. Fast forward a decade and some 50+ excellent releases on the label and we find this great two-sided single. Both sides are uptempo dancers with "I Call It Love" on the flip being equally good.

"It´s Everything About You (That I Love)"
