'Wear Your Natural, Baby' was a good seller when issued on Kent Harris' Romark label in the late 60s - judging by the, at least, three pressings of it. Understandably so, as it is a captivating rhythm for a then very current political and fashionable message. Towana was in fact Ty Karim, singing under her young daughter's name. On this flip, Ty recorded as herself on a cover of the CB Overton's hit 'If I Can't Stop You'. However, Kent Harris decided to not go with this recording at the time and re-cut it with new lyrics as 'Keep On Doin' Whatcha' Doin' as a duet with George Griffin issued in 1980 on Sheridan House. That record has become a modern soul classic over time and this alternate solo version, with the different lyrics, by Ty is sure to excite lovers of that genre.
