The Masqueraders -- "It's You Baby" and "Traveling Man"

The Masqueraders formed in 1958 in Dallas, Texas. They are, like the Futures, for instance, a group that deserves so much more credit than they've got. That they were accomplished vocalists was apparently known to some of the most famous singers back in the day. The Masqueraders made a living by singing background vocals for such greats as Wilson Pickett ("I'm In Love") or Arthur Conley ("Sweet Soul Music.") 
Here's a beautiful love ballad by the group that definitely is up there with the finest love songs ever sung.

It's You Baby (Everybody Wanna Live On, 1976, ABC)

(Call Me) A Traveling Man
