Cytations, a band from Washington DC, were a brief flicker of light in the ever-expanding soul scene that took over the late 1960s. In fact, they were arguably the norm in terms of fame; much like the other bands at the time, they only produced a handful of songs before disbanding and joining other outfits - but that is the sort of stuff which dreams are made of! Their one-hit wonder - "Darling You Do" / "Suddenly" - was out in 1969 on the utterly fledgling Granjun imprint, and its rarity has been masterfully repacked by the US' Federal Green label. The former is a classic soul swinger to strut along to, leaving a seductive hum of vocals and melodies in your mind for the rest of the day, while the flip is a much deeper, more heartfelt soul ballad that is like Romeo to our Juliet. Blissful.
