GROOVE ME

Latest update on 05/01/2012

Artist: King Floyd
Author: King Floyd
Label: Chimneyville
Year: 1970

N°1 R&B. Produced by Wardell Quezerque in the Malaco Studio, Jackson, MS. B-side of What Our Love Needs, but every DJ flipped the record over and gave Malaco it's first success. Malaco was the only label sticking to classic soul while all the others fell for mainstream disco one by one. Chimneyville was Wardell Quezerque's Malaco sublabel. Atlantic picked the song up for national distribution. During that same session Jean Knight's Mr. Big Stuff was cut in that same studio, establishing the Malaco sound. King Floyd was married with Jean Knight's daughter.
