Carl Hall - You Don't Know Nothing About Love
Well, after writing yesterday's post about Carl Hall, I realized that I couldn't just go on with this blog unless I featured Hall's Loma classic "You Don't Know Nothing About Love." This slab of serious soul finds Hall pouring his all into the Jerry Ragovoy tune, and the combination of the backing track, with its alternating periods of calm and storm, and Hall's vocals - don't tell me that his shrieking at the end doesn't raise a hair or two - makes for a killer record. Howard Tate would cover the tune on his 1972 eponymous LP for Atlantic, but as awesome as that recording is, the intensity of Hall's record wins out every time.
