A little before my time but my parents and their friends were big fans.
I'm not sure how young Gladys was in the early '70s (pretty young) but she was bringing it. Like I said yesterday, good thing she came up in the '70s. She would have a hard time getting a record contract now.
"If I Were Your Woman" and "I've Got To Use My Imagination" are also fantastic songs.
What the hell happened to American R&B? Can we please bring back live instruments, a little bass, some drums, something other than machines?
Sorry but most of this current sampled stuff sounds soulless. I wish artists like Jill Scott were topping the charts. When they sing you feel something, like there's actually some emotion in their voices. I miss Lauryn Hill. L Boogie, where are you?
Yeah I know I sound like an old lady but my sister is ten years younger than me, from a completely different generation and she complains about the same thing.
I love Marvin's version of this song as well. Another great artist. I miss Marvin too.
Have a great weekend.
