The Falcons - Standing On Guard - Big Wheel

60s SoulPosted by Martin Fri, July 22, 2011 20:10:30

The Falcons are sometimes credited to have recorded one of the first soul songs with their "You're So Fine" in 1959. A group that went through a number of line-up changes and at one point or another have included soul greats like Wilson Pickett, Eddie Floyd and Mack Rice. This track is from 1966 when all of aforementioned celebrities had already left the group. Little does that matter as the material that they recorded in the mid 60s to my ears is equally brilliant as their 1962 hit "I Found A Love" or anything else that included the more famous members. Enjoy!

"Standing On Guard"
