Covered With Soul 18

Following on from the theme of Covered With Soul in Vol. 5 and Vol. 11, this edition comprises soul covers of other soul songs. One might quibble that “For Your Love” is not really a soul song (nor is, originally, “Try A Little Tenderness”), but it seems to me that Freddie Scott’s version was inspired by the 1967 hit version by Peaches & Herb.

The fun with this series is in wondering in what direction soul singers might take a song. Sometimes the results are quite breathtaking. One of the best examples of that is how The Temptations turn Bill Withers’ simple “Ain’t No Sunshine” into a seven-minute plus epic.

As always, this mix will fit on a standard CD-R and includes home-covered covers. PW in comments.

    Thanks. I look forward to listen to this. Btw, when I listened to AMS 1969 vol 1, I thought I heard some scratches, like from a vinyl rip. Is this the case or is my hearing wrong?

    More magic memories for me in this mix, especially of the many hours spent disco-ing to the Ann Peebles version of “Chain of Fools”! And I’ve always been a big fan of the Temps doing their thing (thang?) on “Ain’t No Sunshine”. Brilliant! Many thanks for the download.

    Thanks, Amdwhah!

    I always enjoy the fact that even though I was raised in Motown, I get all my new soul info from a (former) European in South Africa. God, I love the internet.
