Lay This Burden Down....
There were many soul singers like Mary Love in the 1960s - very talented, competent performers who were nonetheless pushed to the back of the pack because they lacked exceptional material, or enough personality to truly distinguish them from a crowded field.
Mary has performed over the years with greats such as The Temptations and The Four Tops. When Modern Records signed her in the mid 60's they saw her as their answer to Motown but sadly no hits were forthcoming. She is probably best known for this gem of a track that still gets the floor packed amongst Northern Soulsters.
