Fine, Fine, Fine (1965)

Ikettes - Fine Fine Fine - Single

(He’s Gonna Be) Fine, Fine, Fine was the follow-up to the previous single Peaches 'N’ Cream with lead vocals by Venetta Fields, Jessie Smith and Robbie Montgomery, but the danceable song failed to follow the success of it’s predecessor. The version on the album Soul The Hits is titled „He’s Gonna Be Fine,“ but minus the horn section overdub from the single. The b-side track „How Come“ was re-issued on the sampler Can't Sit Down... 'Cos It Feels So Good in 2007. In England, an additional EP-Single was released with four tracks.

Hot on the heels of their „Peaches and Cream“ comes another hard driving dance beat .... in the same vein as their recent hit with a stronger teen lyric. Powerful gospel-inspired performance. Flip: „How Come.“
