This super number by the obscure Jimmy Tate is yet another example of how strong the music scene in New York was in the 60s. After a brief horn flourish Jimmy comes in squealing like Brother James at his best, and carries Please Come Back through in exemplary fashion. The plodding piano is well judged and the strings are just right - not too intrusive - and the occasional horn bursts and female chorus add the perfect touches to an excellent song. Robert Banks - who seems to have been all over Big Apple soul at the time - wrote, arranged and conducted it.
