A great remake of "I'll Slip Away" – done by Charles Bradley in
a style that's even more soulful than the
Rodriguez original! The
Menahan Street Band provide backings – and are funky, but laidback too – with this nice echoey guitar underneath Bradley's vocals, and a snapping rhythm part that grooves along, yet lets Charles firmly take the
flipside features the
original by Rodriguez – a bit moodier, and with a really dark and echoey quality!
