"Um, Um, Um, Um, Um, Um" was written by Curtis Mayfield, recorded by Major Lance and produced by Okeh label president Carl Davis. It was released as a single in December 1963 and was Major Lance's third release to make the Billboard Hot 100. "Um, Um, Um, Um, Um, Um" was his most successful hit peaking at #5 on the Hot 100 in February 1964 and reaching #1 on the Cash Box R&B chart. In 2011, the original Major Lance recording was used in a television commercial for Kraft mozzarella cheese.
What quality to be seen, a few years back may be about 7 or 8 I used to DJ with some old geezers by the names Sean and Nige at places Stoke, Blackpool, Whitby and other places. The backbone of my sets used to be the Chambers Brothers with awesome tunes "Are You Ready" and "I Can't Stand It". Having played these sounds I started hearing at least one of the tune up and down the country, was it down to their radio show in South Wales. It was great to hear the likes of Ginger Taylor playing "I Can't Stand It" at Lowton near Manchester I heard it played at Rugby and not just by me. I have started playing a couple more Chambers Brothers in todays set
anyway sit back and play that video again even louder.
