Some Sunday 80's Soul
The header for today's post is almost a contradiction in terms due to the distinct lack of quality soul music that was released in the 80's. One of the exceptions was View From The Hill's classic soul ballad No Conversation. I have always loved the interplay between the male and female lead vocalists, which together are just beautiful to listen to. Individually they are great, together they are just stunning. Someone may correct me here, but I seem to recall that the sax solo comes courtesy of none other than Courtney Pine. I don't know much about the band, apart from this track, but if their other material is anywhere near as good as No Conversation I would love to hear more. Still sounds incredibly fresh and timeless almost 30 years after it was released.
