They're insistent, and sometimes persistent. "Love or Let Me Be Lonely": A stand-out in the canon of "ultimatum" songs joins The Spinners' "Love or Leave" from 1975.
Excellent deep dive into two soul classics! Read it or else...
I’m gonna need a lot more time with this to listen to all the versions, but, as always, you dig deeper than any shovel or excavator can reach! Yes, I’m calling you a big tool! I had no idea about the Jim Brown/EWF connection! Live and Learn is the rule of the day at FR&BS!
This was a great deep dive into a song I’m not sure I’ve heard before. Really enjoyed it. That Paul Davis version at the end has quite a different feel from the others. I don’t know a lot of Paul Davis songs, but I’m a big fan of Cool Night, Sweet Life, 65 Love Affair and my favorite of his, I Go Crazy. Love me some soft rock jams!!
Fun read. Two classics that benefited from your archaeological skills!
