Stax O’ Great Tracks repeatedly come out from STAX/VOLT.
The song appears on a brilliant CD compiled by Ian Levine: SOLID STAX SENSATIONS –
But Joni is a mystery we need a Soul Detective:
“The only possible clue I can come up with is a George Clinton connection. By coincidence a girl group called the Debonair(e)s recorded for Ed Wingate’s Golden World and Solid Hit labels in the mid sixties. George Clinton and The Parliaments were at the labels at the same time and wrote songs for and produced(?) the Debonaires. A member of the Debonaires at that time was a Joyce Vincent Wilson. There is some doubt about other members of the group although Joyce Wilson’s cousin was a member. Maybe Joni was another relation and another group member, or just hung about the label?
