Sunday Southern Soul Showcase

Obviously what you need on a soggy saturated Sunday is a superb Sunday Southern Soul Showcase -stonking and sensational.
Good use of alliteration I feel.
From the always fantastic Kent label the sumptuous southern soul from Shelby Singleton's SSS International group of labels (yet more alliteration). From the music's golden age 1967-1970.
First up is the title track from George Perkins and the Silver Stars. Billed as part 1. I've never heard part 2 but it would need to go some to equal this
Then also from 1969 it's Doris Allen with the totally stunning A Shell of a Woman.
It doesn't get much better than this
