A good while back, I’d heard a mix I quite liked that had a number of tracks I couldn’t identify. One of my favorites was a track by some female vocalists which, though it was well orchestrated, was just so emotionally raw and honest that it stuck in my head. I figured the title was probably “Underneath My Makeup,” since that was the stand-out section of the hook. Didn’t know I’d happen upon it in my travels. The group turned out to be The Thrills, and just like I thought, the title was indeed “Underneath My Makeup.” Released on the mighty Capitol label in 1967, this soul 45 has power that defies its age. Give it a listen!
