DARLING * THE FALCONS * ATLANTIC 2153 * USA
Although the name of the group dates back to the 'bird' groups of the early 1950s The Falcons became very much part of the early new Soul era. Throughout the groups recording history the groups personnel and name changes are complex, but for the above recording they were: Wilson Pickett, Eddie Floyd, Lance Finnie, Ben Knight and Bonny "Mack" Rice. Darling - a Womack Brothers sounding cut - is the B side to Lah-Tee-Lah-Tah (very much in the style of Ernie K Doe's Te-Ta-Te-Ta-Ta) and was to be Wilson Pickett's penultimate and Eddie Floyd's last with the group.
