Killer Southern dance Soul from the Twins.

Produced by early 60's teen idol Troy Shondel in 1978, Troy expanded his successful recording past in 1969 as he started to become involved in arranging and producing. In search of success the Patterson Twins, Estus & Lester, chose a Motown flipside from 1974 to record; after a string of non-hits on various labels through the 70's. This choice being and their solitary Malaco 45 being by far their most-wanted 45s and for very good reason. "Gonna Find A True Love" is hailed by rare-soul academics as a timeless dancefloor classic that has always been frustratingly hard to acquire.

Refresh your mind and feet with one of the finest rare-soul-dance tunes of that fruitful decade. As these Mississippi Twins inject momentarily "edgy" Funk into the Bottom & Co. original, before Troy sweeps the session off into pure-dance territory. Swirling strings, stabbing horns, squealing girl choruses, lay down an uplifting dance-landscape for two Gospel cultured voices to elevate the session to yet another level.
