Patti Jo – Make Me Believe In You [1972]

Definately one of the rarest occurances in Soul music, someone who produced a better version than the legendary Curtis Mayfield. However, his 1973 cover of this track isnt a patch on Patti Jo’s buttery smooth voice. She manages to push an almost tangible longing into the performance, this isnt just a song, its a bang up request of the most personal. Whats not to love really about this track, its entire arrangement plays second fiddle to the vocal work, the bassline is pure perfection.

Speaking of pure perfection, Tom Moulton did a remix all the way back in 1975 for the movie “Torn”, extending the introduction some and added some additional bongo percussion. Its is almost as good as the original, my only criticism is that we dont get to Patti Jo quick enough!
