The Four Mints -- You're My Desire

The Four Mints are from Columbus, Ohio where they recorded for Bill Moss’ Capsoul Records. You're My Desire was their first single, and it was written by their lead singer Ben "Pete" Caldwell. It should have been more successful in my opinion than it was. 
“Row My Boat,” their next release, would become their biggest success and was an audience favorite at the group's love performances. For a while, it looked as though they were on the right track to being successful because "Row Your Boat" resulted in their first and only LP in 1973 ("Gently Down Your Stream"). 
(Bill Moss reissued the LP on CD in 1995, as The Original Four Mints.) The group also began touring nationally. But when their third single, "Can't Get Strung Out," failed to even get off the ground, the Four Mints gave up their dream of a break through.
