Saturday Single No. 444

In 1969, the Winstons – an R&B group from Washington, D.C. – had a minor hit with a record titled “Love Of The Common People,” which went to No. 54 on the Billboard Hot 100 and to No. 19 on the magazine’s Easy Listening chart. (Earlier in 1969, the Winstons had a bigger hit when “Color Him Father” went to No. 7 in the Hot 100, to No. 2 on the R&B chart and to No. 19 on the Easy Listening chart.)

Next week, we’re going to look at some different versions of “Love Of The Common People,” and we’ll likely take a listen to “Color Him Father” as well. But for now, with guests headed this way, the Winstons’ version of “Love Of The Common People” is today’s Saturday Single.
