Fancy A Fiesta?

We head towards the weekend with some sweet soul from The Fiestas. They formed in the late 1950s and had a big hit in 1959 with "So Fine". Today's selection come from the tail end of their recording career nearly twenty years later.

By this time the lads were eking out a living on subsidiaries of bigger labels. "I Can't Shake Your Love" was issued in 1975 on Respect, part of the Stax stable, while the magnificent "I'm Gonna Hate Myself" from 1977 was tucked away on Chimneyville, a Malaco subsidiary. In a just world it would have been a massive hit, but we all know that it isn't a just world.
