Patti Jo : Make Me Believe In You / Ain't No Love Lost

One of the great unknow soul singers of her time. Proven by the fact that in 1972/1973 Curtis Mayfield chose her to lay down ‘Make Me Believe In You’ and the much underrated ‘Ain’t No Love Lost’. She was only sixteen at the time. Unfortunately, little more is known about this terrific performer.

She's done great versions of Curtis Mayfield's classics "Ain't No Love Lost" and "Make Me Believe In You". The first one was released by Scepterin 1972 and the latter by Scepter's subsidiary Wand a year later. Both were originally released only as a 7" but Tom Moulton made a great extended version of Make Me Believe In You for Scepter's compilation Disco Gold. The same edit appears on this essential Tom Moulton compilation.
