The Modulations’ “This Old World is Going Down” is a sacred sibling of the Temptations' “Shakey Ground.” Though lead singer Glenn Jones would follow the path of Sam and Aretha and find secular success in the 1980s, his sugary pop-gospel mid-chart hits left no indication of his dark and apocalyptic beginnings on Chicago's One Way label. The Modulations would later release more upbeat material on their own label (produced by God, the label declared) before signing to Savoy in the 1970s.
