The Cavaliers from Mississippi released only one 45 under their own name, "Looking for Love" / "You Better Move On" on the Spot Light label in May 1966. "You Better Move On" is the Arthur Alexander song that the Rolling Stones covered. I particularly like their performance on "Looking for Love," an original credited to simply 'Freeman'.

Their version of "You Better Move On" was picked up for release by Shelby Singleton's SSS International label with a new group name, as the Moving Violations (catchy, right?). The flip was a different song for this release, "In the Deep Blue Sea", written by John Burk. Production is by Huey Meaux.

The Cavaliers also had an unreleased song from these sessions, "Girl Why Can't You Understand", that is excellent.
