Truth & Soul have let me know about their latest 45:
Truth & Soul have unearthed another soul gem, this time from 1972. Timothy McNealy puts down a laidback groove that lulls the listener into a soulful state of mind with his cover of Al Green's classic "I'm So Glad You're Mine." McNealy's voice, simultaneously calming and commanding, triggers memories of Al Green and Bill Withers, while the guitar, drums and keys gently bounce off McNealy's vocal stylings, evoking the essence of the golden era of soul. A song sampled and covered hundreds of times, the opening stick click drum intro, a short melodic line that repeats throughout the song, is immediately recognizable as a classic soul snippet. McNealy stays true to the sound of the original but adds female back-up singers and a rough sound that gives the song a raw, live energy. So kick back with your favorite beverage and let the sweet sounds of the song bring you back to a calmer day. "I'm So Glad You're Mine" appears on Fallin' Off The Reel Vol. 2, a Truth & Soul compilation, which is available now on both CD and double LP.
