This is a well-known track from Bobby Taylor in 1968, and there's an interesting story about this group, Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard of The Supremes went to see the group at the Elegant Parlor in Vancouver, they were so impressed they told Berry Gordy and he signed them to Motown straight away, and the rest is history!

Funk it definitely was, but it was also the beginnings of an era called Disco where a danceable beat trumped everything. The Detroit Emeralds consisted of three brothers originally from Little Rock, Arkansas who moved to Detroit to pursue a career in music. "Do Me Right" never made it into the Top 40 in 1971, but it was a stand-out recording for the Detroit Emeralds.
The Dramatics (formerly The Dynamics) were a American soul music vocal group, formed in Detroit, Michigan in 1967. They are best known for their 1970s million- selling hit songs, "In the Rain" and "Whatcha See is What You Get"
This Is A Great 70s Temptations Classic it sounds a little like Eddie Kendricks but the tenor on this song is Damon Harris,(Harris) was also on Papa Was A Rolling Stone and few other Temptation hits
I'll bet they didn't do this one last night...
