Well, at least I know what to post today. I know I have posted the Continental Four before on one of the now retired blogs. It was one of their better known songs" "How Can I Pretend."
Okay, so here we go with true gem. Everything is right in this recording: the vocals, the music, the background ... Just a fine piece of music.
The Continental Four was a quartet that put out some excellent early 70′s music for Jay Walking Records, a subsidiary of the Soulville label. Their trademark was the mellifluous falsetto lead — so characteristic of the era — of Freddy Kelly. Their material represents the Sound of Philadelphia at it’s finest with fine background harmonies and elaborate musical arrangements.
