“Let the Music Take Your Mind”: Songwriter Uncertain

Let the Music Take Your Mind” is the third of three singles released by Kool & the Gang on indie label, De-Lite, in 1969 — the group’s first year of its recorded existence:

As 45Cat contributor, BeatleJohn, humorously observes, the promo 45 for “Let the Music Take Your Mind” (stereo & mono mixes of the same track, as is customary) features a different songwriting credit on either side!

This track was initially withheld from the first issue of Kool & the Gang’s 1969 debut album — which enjoyed release in Italy and the Netherlands — but then included on a subsequent 1970 pressing.
