I’d heard of Etta’s music via the northern soul angle and wasn’t familiar with her work that’s more in the style of country, Memphis or southern soul. So, Richard’s selection was refreshing and brought some new sounds to my ears, which is always welcome. Good for the soul you might say.
I made this Spotify playlist of Richard’s 10 selected tracks:
If you can’t see the embedded playlist above, here’s the playlist:
- Let’s Burn Down the Cornfield
- Almost Persuaded
- Damn Your Eyes
- I’d Rather Go Blind
- Misty Blue
- If I Can’t Have You
- Lovin’ Arms
- I Worship the Ground You Walk On
- In the Evening
Go and have a listen. Superb, real r&b with depth.
