A track of which I never tire. Deep soul groove, right-on message.
This is one of the songs I will put on repeat at my desk sometimes, and just let it wash over me for dozens of plays as I work away at some soul-crushing spreadsheet problem or similar task. Soul music to save your soul. Black power messages to help you keep the faith.
Kendricks was a member of that Motown supergroup, The Temptations, before leaving in the early 1970s to pursue a solo career. This song comes from his second solo album, which was his breakthrough commercial success, mostly in the nascent disco scene.
