Song The MC5 Taught Us



"Ted Taylor unleashed his stratospheric, falsetto-driven voice on a wide variety of material during the '50s, '60s, and '70s, his gospel heritage never far from the surface. Taylor first entered the studio as a member of the Cadets and Jacks, a Los Angeles r&b vocal group with two names that recorded for Modern. By the late '50s, Taylor was signed to Ebb, and a myriad of other imprints soon followed. A car wreck claimed his life in 1987." [from AllMusic]

Awesome. And don't forget the Killer's version, from a '62 b-side.
