Uff. Here’s a groovy il ditty from 1956. Big Maybelle Smith and her boisterous voice render no comparison. Her bluesy rasp is on the verge of growl, making for a whole lotta soul.
Baby, I love you so (Sho’ nuff) You got me beggin’ and pleading (That’s right) Your love is all I need (Say more) There’s nothin’ I wouldn’t do That’s a pretty good love.”
This version is remixed with extra instrumentation courtesy of DJ Prince. Full of energy, this upbeat rhythm and blues track is an ideal listen when you’re in need of a pick-me-up. There’s something so real about Big Maybelle’s voice; somehow she’s managed to take my melancholia and transform it into euphoria. This is what real lovin’ is all about.
