This is another one of my favorite Laura Nyro (born Laura Nigro) songs recorded by The 5th. The song, appearing on the “Stoned Soul Picnic” LP, peaked the Pop charts at #2 and the R&B Charts at #3 and the Canadian music charts at #5.

Every summer this song can be heard on radio station across American as cities across the nation advertise the “Stoned Soul Picnic” in their respective locations.  This is mos def a perennial summer favorite!

The five original members of the group are pictured above from top to bottom, right to left: , Ron Tyson, Marilyn McCoo, Billy Davis, Jr., Florence LaRue and Lamonte McLemore.

Here is a YouTube video of a television performance of the song for your viewing pleasure.

Thanks for stopping by.
