Johnny Bristol – Hang On In There Baby (MGM Records)

Johnny Bristol made himself a name first as a songwriter and producer in the second half of the sixties for Motown Records, eventually collaborating with Harvey Fuqa and giving birth to classics such as Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell‘s ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’, Edwin Starr‘s “Twenty-Five Miles’, and David Ruffin’s ‘My Whole World Ended (The Moment You Left Me)’.
He would switch to CBS by the second half of the folowing decade then to MGM Records where he started his career as a singer.
Taken from his 1974 released album of the likes, the H.B. Barnum arranged ‘Hang On In There Baby’ stands as his biggest classic ever, somehow reminding of Barry White‘s approach. An impression which will be even stronger 6 years after on the groovy ‘Love No Longer Has A Hold On Me’
