The Newcomers -- Mannish Boy

Taken from yet another KENT compilation of 60's and 70's Soul, is today's song, Mannish Boy. The Newcomers released a handful of singles between 1969 and 1974 for Stax. (Pin The Tail On The Monkey, Keep An Eye On Your Close Friends, Too Much Going To Say Goodbye.) In the beginning their music unmistakably was coined by the Motown sound, while towards the end, The Sound Of Philadelphia provided the pattern for their tunes.
