Reachin' Out in 2009!
Bobby Moore & The Rhythm Aces - Reaching Out
My New Year's resolution for 2009 is to bring the activity level of this blog back to what it used to be. I want to "get on down" as much as I can! So Happy New Year to all of you, dear readers, and let's get down to cases!
I've written about the Muscle Shoals combo Bobby Moore & The Rhythm Aces before, so I'll just note that "Reaching Out" is an appealing tune that shifts between Southern soul balladry on the choruses and a rushed groove in the verses before closing out up-tempo. Although the tempo shifts make the song unfit for dancing, it's a nice number with a nice spirit to it.
