A. Patti Jo - Make Me Believe In You B. Patti Jo - Stay Away From Me
PATTI JO was a Nashville teen when she cut this, original, version of Curtis Mayfield’s song “Make Me Believe In You”. She still resides in Nashville today but has remained somewhat of an enigma. One thing is for certain, if the quarter of a million YouTube views are anything to go by, this is one mighty mighty slab of pure funk/northern/rare groove SOUL! The master was produced by Curtis Mayfield for Scepter Records in 1973 and released on their Wand imprint. Reissued here for the first time under the Scepter logo and coupled with another Mayfield song “Stay Away From Me” on which Patti delivers a stunning performance on the song that Mayfield originally cut with Major Lance.
