92. The Grass Roots - Baby Hold On

Found on: More Golden Grass (1970)

When I discovered The Grass Roots, I asked my dad if he liked them back in the day. His response was interesting. He said he wasn't a big fan; he and his hip friends viewed the band as overly poppy and commercial. So they were basically the Matchbox Twenty of the '70s. Personally, I find very little to dislike. Baby Hold On is a white soul classic. P.S. This is not the Eddie Money song!

I love this list - but I find this one a bit generic and mediocre compared to the many that could take its place . . . Al Stewart wrote three songs that should be here instead . . . and there are many disco, soul, and other worthy contenders.
