The following hand-picked tunes serve as a sobering antidote to the pain of unrequited love. Or perhaps a relationship past the point of salvation. Maybe even a gnawing desire for human connection that can never be truly satiated. Sung with conviction – a reminder that you are not alone.
By way of Muscle Shoals, D.C., Memphis, Dallas, Oakland, St. Louis, Los Angeles, West Virginia, Chicago, Detroit, Cincinnati, Beaumont, Shreveport, Atlanta, and all the places in between, celebrating black soul music’s enduring tradition of love and loss in equal parts.
