Lo-fi at its' best. The tape distortion and the dead floor tom and tambourine pattern in combination with the beautiful backing vocals from The Shirelles, all provide just enough space for Shirley Owens to cut through at the 15 second mark with a stunning, truly soulful, and natural reverb assisted vocal performance. Aside from a somewhat jarring organ injection near the end this is a pretty amazing track.
