I’m So Thankful
I’m So Thankful was an R&B success, but still no pop crossover, as had happened with I’m Blue and Peaches 'N’ Cream, despite appearances by Robbie, Jessie and Venetta on tv shows including „Shindig,“ „Hullahalloo“ and „Shebang“. Like Peaches 'N’ Cream, it features Jessie Smith on the lead vocals. The version on the album Soul The Hits is a different mix with a few extra backing vocals. The flip „Don't Feel Sorry For Me“ is a funked up cover of the old Jimmy Beasley hit issued in 1956.
Released September 1965 in America from Modern Records and January 1966 in Europe from Polydor Records on 7“ vinyl, I’m So Thankful reached #12 on the R&B charts in America.
