Last summer I featured Carla Thomas on the blog and reiterated my regular declaration, "Carla Thomas is my favorite female soul singer (period)." Nothing's changed since then, and today's selection actually buttresses my opinion. "Good Good Lovin'" is one of those lost gems that appeared on the comp 3000 Volts of Stax. After a very tasteful guitar opening, Carla sweetly lays out her ballad while the band provides fine support. Long live the Queen!
