Written-By – King Floyd. A4. Baby Let Me Kiss You. Written-By – King Floyd. A5. Messing Up My Mind. Written-By – Joe Broussard, King Floyd. Very tasteful strings in there. As a matter of fact, the arrangements by Wardell Quezergue are splendid throughout the whole album. A varied soul-funk LP record by a pleasant singer, that’s quality to me. Reply Notify me 1 Helpful.
