One'sy mack- never listen to your heart.....I think?? might be on discogs....good luck...Rob

Thanks so much for reminding me of her for all these years her tunes were being played and no one seemed to bother finding out who she was, which bearing in mind she recorded for "Atlantic" and released other tunes (This one being my favourite). Sadly she passed recently and I have found out her details below for all to know

 

Ms. Alice Jean "One'sy" Mack of New York City. Ms. Mack was born in Darlington County and affectionately known by family and friends as One'sy, attended and graduated from Mayo High School Class of 1958 where she participated in many activities. During her eighth grade school year she wrote words for the Mayo High School Alma Mater. She continued her education at South Carolina State College earning a degree in Home Economics. Working in many capacities her occupations included; teaching school, dietetics, a song writer, a singer, acting, a pianist and a producer.

If it wasn't for this post we would never have found out.......Thanks

It was a strange release to escape on Ghetto Records as just about everything else the label released was Latin Soul … but it was produced by Jorge Febo /  George Febo who was involved with the vast majority of the releases on the label (the other straight sides that came out on Ghetto being by the Edward's Generation).

Yes  I've always thought that too.  The Edwards generations a pretty good tune too.
