I originally bought this for the other side "Sweet Thing" which is a decent enough dancer, but as the years have gone by I have found myself playing this wonderful deep soul cut more & more. Rudy Mockabee is still going strong after some 40 years in the business. He started singing, like so many of his peers, in gospel groups at an early age and then moved on to secular music. After a short stint as a member of The Drifters, Mockabee had his first solo record, today´s addition, released in 1969. One more 45 followed the year after, also on Atco records called "Piece Of My Heart" / "Think About It". After that it seems like Mockabee´s recording days were over but he has continued performing to present day, especially in and around his native Huntsville Ala. area. Enjoy!
