Listen: I’m Doin’ Fine Now / New York City NYCDoinFine.mp3
Once known as The Triboro Exchange, their new labels, Chelsea in the US / RCA for the UK and name, New York City, fell into place just before this single hit. Clearly locals, a history in both Harlem RnB and gospel proceeded them back to the mid 60′s. ‘I’m Doin’ Fine Now’ hit Top 20 in the US and UK, basically marking their career chart peak. Along with First Choice ‘Smarty Pants’ and ‘You Can Do Magic’ by Limmie & Family Cooking, they define my mainstream soul preferences for summer ’73.
