(Mar 10, 2013): Marlena Shaw – California Soul

From the b-side of the 1969 7″ (45 rpm) single, Looking Thru The Eyes Of Love / California Soul.  This Ashford & Simpson tune was first recorded by The Messengers and The Fifth Dimension in 1967.  Nick Ashford would record it himself in 1968.  Marlena Shaw’s version, though, got the most traction and it would be included in her 1969 LP, The Spice of Life.  More recently, it was included in the Verve Remixed series (no. 4), remixed by Diplo / Mad Decent.
