Innocent 'Til Proven Guilty.

Tonight's track is 'Innocent 'Til Proven Guilty' by The Honey Cone. 
Honey Cone was a girl group signed to the Hot Wax label which was run by Holland, Dozier, and Holland, a trio of song writers that helped shape the Motown sound but left to start their own label that they could have complete creative control over. Honey Cone was only together as a group for four years, but managed to chart multiple singles in their short time together, with their 1970 single 'Want Ads' hitting #1 overall on the Billboard charts. The group broke up in 1973 shortly before their label folded from financial woes.  Here is their song 'Innocent 'Til Proven Guilty' off of their third and final album Love, Peace, & Soul.

Tonight's bonus track is Honey Cone's 'Want Ads' follow-up and second most successful single, 'Stick Up':
