I Got To Find Somebody (1967)

No not the Velvelettes nor The Velvets and not the backing singers for Lou Reed; but you never know. This is The Vel-vets.

Kev Roberts informs us that the lead singer is Janet Terrell in his Top 500 in which he puts this song at 37. Certainly a good find and one we missed in 1967.
