There are many songs that deserve a play on “Father’s Day,” but one that really resonates with me as a son and a father is this one by The Winstons.
The Winstons first burst on to the scene as a member of Curtom Records, Curtis Mayfield’s label. In fact, some people thought they sounded too much like The Impressions another group under the same label.
They did not last long with Curtom Records. They had signed at the early stages of Mayfield setting up the label and it had not received international recognition. That is often thought to be the reason their first single did not do very well.
The left Curtom Records and signed with Metromedia Records and released their next single. That single hit Number Two on the R&B Charts, just missing Number One. The song was to also make it big on the Pop Charts, making the Top Ten on the Pop Charts.
Let us listen to The Winstons with “Color Him Father.”
