April’s compilation of soul and funk 45s includes an eclectic group of records discussing topics on both ends of the love spectrum. Starting out, we have a love ballad sung by Eddie McLoyd, followed by a track from female vocalist Rosalind Madison, and ending the list with Johnny Moore.

This month we start off with Eddie McLoyd’s biggest hit to date, “Once You Fall in Love.” Eddie is a bit of a renaissance man – having many talents and achievements over the course of his career including music, television, and outdoor hobbies according to his website. This 45 discusses how much influence love has on our life decisions, emotions, and overall happiness.

“Here’s your one chance Fancy.” Rosalind Madison resembles what some might consider a sugar baby on the A side of this 45. A young girl and her mother are hardly getting by and so the daughter is out looking for someone that can help support them. Listen to the track available below to see how the story ends. There’s definitely a bit of materialism and greed throughout the A side of this 45, but Rosalind sure has an impressive flow with her lyrics.

The final 45 for the month of April talks about the complications and challenges many people face during relationships.
