Marlena Shaw – California Soul (1969)

YouTubeAmazoniTunes – Discogs

In 1969, Marlena Shaw sang this Ashford and Simpson classic. She catches a sound that resonated with the funky summers to come. But what’s more, she sang it better than Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell, the greatest soul duet that there would ever be. And for that Marlena, you became a legend with the entire early 90s revival of Acid Jazz, Nuyorica, Luv N’ Haight etc. Have a great weekend.
