Marie Knight “Comes The Night” (Musicor 1076, 1964)

Some nights are meant for roaming the dark, moist streets in melancholy by yourself or one understanding soul. And I had one of those great nights of self reflection filled with thought provoking conversation and deep thought internally and externally.

Where am I going with this in relation to Marie Knight’s first single (and the non chart side at that) for Musicor? I dunno, other than it truly fit the mood tonight.
