3AM Eternal: The Five Stairsteps “You Waited Too Long” (1966)

five stairsteps

Though The Five Stairsteps will forever be associated with their wonderful song, “Ooh Child,” their career began several years before, and they produced quite a number of perfect soul ballads under the tutelage of Curtis Mayfield–who signed them to his label Windy C–this number, taken from their debut album, highlights their talents. The video is rough, but the performance is stellar…even if it is lip-synched.
