It's worth repeating

Slim pickings at the boots today but pleased with this one for the princely sum of 50p.

The Masqueraders were a great vocal harmony group that should have made it BIG.  

Isaac Hayes on production here on an album that was released in 1977. It's really only a one tracker but I've had "Modern Day Woman" on repeat this afternoon.

This will certainly do until one day I hopefully snag an affordable copy of James Shorter's original version which came out on La Beat in 1967. The Masqueraders were also signed to La Beat in 1967 and I believe they were providing some of the background vocals on the James Shorter release.

Interesting how the credits for the song completely changed in the 10 years between these two recordings:

1967: Bridges-Eaton-Knight
1977: Equehart-Shorter
