I'll Be There

Image hosted by
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.

Interesting that the Georgia Soul blog just posted another 45 on Trager.

Yup Yup, Eula Cooper's "Try". This Franceine Thomas track got to be a pretty hot commodity after Keb Darge put it on one of his deep funk compilations. It's blinding fast, maybe too fast to dance to, but what a record!
