My Sunday Mood

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.

  1. Yass Twin!
    Mood music for a sunny Sunday morning! This takes me to an imaginary Champagne brunch all up and through my frontal cortex.

    Thanks for this one! It’s new to me! but with MFSB or anything from Philly International you CANNOT GO WRONG!

    You already know how I feel about strings so I am in my happy space with this one.

  2. Hello again T. Definitely a great song for a Sunday morning. I hadn’t heard of them before. There’s a song that I am crazy about that I look for from every artist I can find. One of the versions I like is George Benson’s one. In checking out this band, I came across their version of the song which is smooth in the beginning and then goes up tempo. Check it out:
