Hailing from Magee, Mississippi, The Patterson Twins; Estus & Lester would go on to record for the King, Ronn & Malaco labels among others.  This Big Beat 45 is believed to be their debut from 1972 under the Soul Twins moniker. It shares the same 1287 catalog release number as another Vicki Williams 45. The Years People band provide the backing (as with the Frank Tenella 45 on Odex).  The brothers started off singing gospel & made a return to the gospel field in the late 80s.  They were still performing and recording up until at least 2006.  I have not heard this 45 & would love to check it out.
