I'll Be There
I thought I would continue with 45s by the ladies, and so, tonight, I bring you Franciene Thomas' "I'll Be There" on Tragar. Perhaps a bit more polished than the Big Ella 45 featured last night, this 45 is still a storming, soulful funk track. The drums are, again, non-stop, and, along with the bass, get plenty of the spotlight. The horns are just phenomenal, tight and spot on. And Franciene's vocals never seem rushed even though the drummer is keeping that frenetic pace. She just makes her promise to her man.
Have a listen here.
