Song of the Day – “I Got the Fever” – The Georgia Prophets

Perfect little small-label seventies soul non-hit.

The lead singer for the Prophets was Billy Scott, born Peter Pendleton. Wikipedia says that Scott had a gold record with this song in 1968. Other sources have it released with the Prophets or Georgia Prophets in 1971 or 1976. Yet another source has it done by a band called Creation. That’s the trouble with small-label tracks that never hit the Top 40: you often can’t get a straight story about credits.
