All time great, evergreen R&B dancer from the legendary Johnny Guitar Watson. With its call and response vocals and snappy riff, on 'I Say I Love You' Watson comes across a little like Ray Charles with more casual, streetwise attitude. And don't let the middle tempo fool you, this is about as infectious as it gets and a guaranteed floor filler every time. On the flip, 'Sweet Lovin Mama' is another cool R&B side that Watson cut for King Records in the early 60s - slightly less known than 'I Say I Love You' but ripe for a little more exposure.
