NOTE:  I’ve been invited to a local event kicking off the candidacy of a local politician, so this presents a great opportunity to find out firsthand what her stated positions are on various matters.  I doubt that I will be able to return by the time this publishes.  If someone could kindly post an opening comment for ponies on my behalf, I would be very appreciative.  Thanx.

This week’s selection takes us back to 1975, when a cover version of a number written by Grammy-winning songwriter Skip Scarborough climbed to #11 on the U. S. Black and #39 on the U. S. Pop Singles charts. The song received a Grammy nomination for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalists.  

The album on which this song appeared enjoyed considerably greater success, occupying the #1 position on the Billboard Pop Albums Chart for three consecutive weeks, was the second bestselling R&B album of 1976 and received triple platinum certification.  This album was reissued in 2000.
