MFSB (Mother, Father, Sister, Brother) was best known as the house band for Philadelphia International Records. The band played on hits by The O’Jays, Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes, Teddy Pendergrass, Billy Paul, The Three Degrees and many others throughout the 1970s. They also are responsible for one of the most recognizable versions of the theme song from the television show Soul Train, which featured The Three Degrees on vocals.
From time to time, they released albums under their own name, and today’s Morning Groove is a track from their Universal Love album from 1975. This is the song that closed the album, and a song that I love to hear when I’m relaxing. “My Mood” is today’s Morning Groove.
This is a perfect song for a Sunday morning groove; it introduces itself, comes on without too much fuss, and eases out of the picture in just over four minutes. If you’ve ever heard an MFSB song, you know that there will be a string section in there somewhere, and this song is not an exception. I also believe that Vince Montana is tickling the vibes on this one as well.
Kick back, relax and enjoy today’s Morning Groove. As always, thanks for reading and listening.
