Some Sunday Soul
On his latest post on the ever excellent Feel It blog Darcy made reference to Angie Stone and Jill Scott who were flying the soul flag in the early '00s.
Hang on I thought there are two artists who have yet to feature on SSS.
So we will start with Angie Stone and her debut album Black Diamond on Arista Records from 1999.
I think I bought this record in Stirling. Wherever it was a sticker on the front tells me it was from Europa Music and I paid £5 for the privilege.
I must admit that it is a long time since I have taken it from the shelves and given it a spin.
Whereas I prefer my soul somewhat rougher and slightly less polished I was pleasantly surprised when I played it in the car the other day.
It was better that I remembered and it particular on these two tracks.
No prizes for guessing who will feature next week.
