Love Gonna Pack Up (And Walk Out)

Photobucket
My modus operandi this summer has to been to lay off e-bay and the internet in general for records, and just go out and see what I find at records shows, flea markets, yard sales, etc....I've become lackadaisical about my hobby. It seems to be much more fun to see what I stumble upon instead of having a list of records I must own and seeking them out. It makes for some ups and downs, some surprises, as well as some serious disappointments.

Why do I tell you this? Because, upon hearing Sly, Slick & Wicked's "Love Gonna Pack Up (And Walk Out)" on a mix CD a month or so ago, I broke with my standard way of doing things and hunted down a copy off the internet pronto. The tune is stripped down soul of the highest order - no horns or orchestration, just the vocalists, the drums, and organ, and an occassional appearance by the bass and guitar players. Just those snapping drums holding everything together while the organist supports the vocal harmonies (and, when playing in between the vocals, adding a nice bit of moodiness to the tune). A special mention about the lead vocalist, who really tears up this tune by wringing the emotions out of the lines like "does it matter / whose fault it was?" by pushing the first half and pulling back on the latter half. Finally, the whole tune has a 'roughness around the edges' to it that works well for the subject matter. Fantastic stuff. More tunes like this, please.

Hi Dave,

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see any links to that this 45s can be heard. I'm not sure what the point is of this blog. I don't own these 45s. I likely won't spend the time foraging in record store bins here in Los Angeles (I have in the past and it's a great time killer since bins are mostly unorganized), and I don't really know this genre of music though I would like to learn. So, here are these elaborate write ups which can never approach the real experience of hearing. It's like hearing of a party but not being invited. It's a shame too, because you seem genuinely enthusiastic. What gives?
