The Eccentric-Awesome Thing Continues!
George McGregor & The Bronzettes - Temptation Is Hard To Fight
Today's post returns to the Numero Eccentric Soul comp Twinight's Lunar Rotation and yet another powerful ballad. George McGregor & The Bronzettes' "Temptation Is Hard to Fight" is a stately thing with an atmospheric intro (the guitar line cleverly interpolates the chorus of the Knight Brothers' similarly-themed "Temptation 'Bout To Get Me"), nice plaintive vocals from George, and good background work by the hastily-assembled Bronzettes (George's girlfriend and a few other singers). Although, like most Twinight product, this one fell through the cracks when released, it's an awesome record.
