It goes without saying that I picked this song up off of the Lost and Found; it’s got to be my biggest source for finding ‘new’ music these days, despite the fact that the songs I find are typically 40+ years old. I heard this track a few weeks ago, and by the end of it I knew I would be posting it here someday. This is another example of a shorter track that I can listen to over and over again without it ‘growing old’ on me. The irony astounds, doesn’t it?
Reuben Bell was born and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana where he had mild success as a frontman to The Casanovas and The Belltones. Sadly, he was living in poverty in his hometown at the time of his death in 2004. But don’t let that get you down, this song is still going strong 42 years after he recorded it. This track can be found on Shreveport Southern Soul – The Murco Story, a soul / R&B compilation that features Reuben and many other artists on the Murco record label. If you like what you hear, you’ll find a Mediafire link to album below.
P.S. Check out that stud Eddy Giles on the album cover. The woman is attractive too, I suppose. But damn, Eddy… keep snappin’ to the beat.
