True authentic soul music from the past...by the original artists...
When soul music had 'soul' to it...nothing commercial or pop about it, most of it side B of albums of the day...but sung from the heart, the soul, and back when many of the singers had church choir roots to them...and you can hear it in their voice, and passion...and they simply crossed over into the recording industry.
True soul classics...a niche probably very few can relate to...
This song may of been redone by 'Paul and Oats'...but Tavares sung the original as posted here.
This song totally has late 70's, bell bottoms written all over it, when life was still somewhat simple, at least compared to today.
This song reminds me of like the streets of San Francisco in the late 60's, mid 70's...back when hippies reigned or were beginning to kind of fade away.
Distant memories of peoples youth, the 'last dance' with youth they may of had before evolving onto something else and changing and adapting to the modern world controlled by computers and commerce.
This song reminds me of those relationships forged so long ago at the twilight of certain peoples youth, a time now relegated to certain memories.
Hall and Oats version to follow.
If one is 'white' a older 70's hippie child type, they may be able to relate to this version better, by Hall and Oats...
Barefoot, semi rural, lost, young, hot summers, nothing better to do but drink, party and play, when hair was flush and thick, when you were fascinated with own feet, when you could smell the aroma of the earth.
Youth is, was, special like that, now all relegated to memory for some, many.
But here in the Twylightzone....those memories live on and are still alive.
