A. The Artistics - This Heart Of Mine
B. The Artistics - So Much Love In My Heart
THE ARTISTICS were a Chicago 4-piece harmony group who got their first break singing back-up for Major Lance on his 1963 hit “Monkey Time”. They were signed to Okeh the same year and had their first hit in ’65 with our top-side “This Heart Of Mine” which reached No.25 in the Billboard R&B Chart. Their follow-up singles all missed and here we feature their farewell to Okeh in ’66 “So Much Love In My Heart”. Fortunately the group signed to Brunswick and were back in the charts the same year with “I’m Gonna Miss You”.
