Aaron Neville – Tell It Like It Is (1966)

YouTube –  AmazoniTunes

‘Tell It Like It Is’ is a song penned by George Davis and Lee Diamond, but known as Aaron Neville’s, who released it as a single in 1966. Apparently, Art Neville said, “Bro, this is the shit right here,” on hearing the song. Goodness knows what the The Meters front man thought of Aaron’s ‘Hercules’ – the funk masterpiece that got me thinking about Aaron Neville after yesterday’s post. But the truth is that he would never trump ‘Tell It Like It Is’. The vocals are a cut above.
