Tonight's song is 'Patches' as covered by Clarence Carter.
The song was originally recorded by Chairmen of the Board, which was the headlining act for the Invictus/Hot Wax label, who are most well known for their hit 'Give Me Just A Little More Time.' Clarence Carter's cover came out the same year as the Chairmen of the Board's original recording, 1970, but it was Carters version that became a Top 10 hit and received a Grammy in 1971 for Best R&B Song.
