Good Lovin, is an uptempo, fuzzed out burner in which Lady forgo the innuendoes and word play, and instead, praise a man that "knows how to do it right". This one is as much for the B-Boys & B-Girls on the floor as it is for the two steppers.
The flip side is also a tribute to a loved one, but a more G-rated kinda thing. "Sweet Lady" is a song about Mom, propelled by hard hitting drums while pretty glockenspiel, reverb soaked piano, and bouncy guitars all float on top. The music sounds like a lost b-side from the "What's Going On" sessions, but the vocals make sure it's unmistakably Lady. Ms. Wray and the girls vocals on Sweet Lady are one of the most memorable melodies on their self-titled debut.
LADY "GET READY" b/w "GET READY" (TICKLAH RMX)
The song “Get Ready,” taken from their self-titled LP, is one of the best examples of their truly unique sound. The heavy drums, driving rhythm, and punching horns provide the perfect backdrop for Nicole's raw vocal stylings and positive message.
The B-side is a masterful remix by NYC reggae super dude, Victor Axelrod, a.k.a Ticklah. All that remains of the original are the vocals; the rest is replayed and reprogrammed. The result is a song that sounds like a classic reggae tune that could of been cut on the same day and in the same studio as Johnny Osbourne's "We Need Love". This is not a remix in today's sense of the word - this is a version.
QUNESTINE STRONG "ONE HUNDRED YEARS FROM NOW"
PICTURE SLEEVE 45
Like most great undiscovered soul 45s, Qunestine Strong's "A Thousand Years From Now" musically derives from the church, 1960's R&B, and the iconic Motown sound. This laborious studio magic has been remastered and fittingly repackaged by Truth & Soul Records, another T&S sureshot.
