the Tempting Ones

Cleveland, 1966-7

A soul/R&B group that played and sang, this group competed in the city wide '67 Battle of the Bands. The recorded one 45 at Audio Recording, "Watch Me Now" b/w "Heartaches", both sides originals. Issued on the Vaughn label, believed to me their manager's name, "Watch Me Now" is a slow scorcher with great lyrics like "Got a big black wave hanging in my face, I wear a mean pair of shades..." - a candidate for the best 60s raw/deep soul 45 out of Cleveland.
