Some Sunday Soul
We finish 2015 with some Soul from deepest darkest Paisley courtesy of Paolo Nutini.
Wee Paolo has always been a bit of a musical chameleon dabbling in pop, rock and reggae.
On his third album Caustic Love it is pretty much exclusively Soul including many of his own compositions.
Puts me in mind of Terence Trent D'Arby in places without the arrogance.
It features a couple of covers including Let Me Down Easy. Drew featured the Betty Lavette original the other day
When they come to write the History of Scottish Soul I would imagine that it will be a pretty thin volume. Wee Paolo certainly merits a mention alongside the likes of The Average White Band and Emili Sande
More Soul in 2016
