One of the many incarnations of The Clovers, with Roosevelt " Tippie" Hubbard singing lead, this is the original recording of 'Bossa Nova Baby'. The song was a hit for Elvis a year later in '63.
Quite fast for "Bossa Nova." Nice sax solo by King Curtis.
This blog is for lovers of the song pressed on the vinyl 45, songs lesser known, to obscure...

The days of finding 45 rpm records at flea markets, thrift stores, garage sales, and even record stores is fading fast in the iPod/digital device age...
Started hunting down records in the 70s. Love the ritual of dropping the needle into the groove, watching it spin, hearing a few dull crackles, pops, or hisses, the label art, etc.
I like just about all genres/styles of music, but Soul and R&B have been my passion.
Unfortunately, hearing these records pressed and converted into digital files diminishes the sound a lot. It just doesn't give a warm analog sound records have. To hear a vinyl 45 through speakers and an amp is quite stunning. But it will have to do. Happy listening.
