Lookin' for a Love - The Valentinos - HQ
The hit count on this YouTube video is so low that I get the impression that not many people are aware of this cut. The Rolling Stones did a respectable version very early on; this is the original. (Oh no they didn't. That was "It's All Over Now," another great Valentinos cut.) The Valentinos included all four of the Womack Brothers, I'm pretty sure, I'm winging it (as usual). They were four left-handed guitar playing Gospel singers who were hooked up with Sam Cooke's label. Bobby was the most famous brother. This is creme de la creme of all time stuff right here.
