Originals: “Love So Fine” by Roger Nichols

“Love So Fine” is something of a lost A&M hit. It sounded like it should have been a smash on the charts, yet it was pretty much forgotten over the years.  Diehard fans of Roger Nichols with his Small Circle of Friends hadn’t forgotten, and Herb Alpert covered this with his Tijuana Brass on the Herb Alpert’s Ninth album.  After a decades-long absence, Nichols and the Small Circle of Friends have released two albums in recent years, well worth seeking out if you liked their smooth vocal sounds from the original A&M album!
