Mimi Farina and Tom Jans
Good God, I’m Feeling Fine/Good God I'm Feeling Fine
A&M 1339/1339-S (2276/2276-S) (1971) - US 7" single

Notes: 1) This is a promotional copy of a track not included in the “Take Heart” album. On one side the mix is in mono and on the other it is in stereo. 2) According to same track was issued as side A of a single having the album track “Reach Out” on side B. Catalog number mentioned on said website page (1339-S) suggests that single was mixed in stereo. This particular promotional copy bears four different catalog numbers instead: a mono and stereo 1339 and a mono and stereo 2276. 3) No credits for the musicians are listed on label, except for the producer Michael Jackson. It makes sense to think that this track was recorded during the same “Take Heart” sessions (see entry above), with the same group of musicians including Lee.


1 - Good God, I’m Feeling Fine - stereo mix
