The Low Down From Nashville

Freddie Waters - I Love You, I Love You, I Love You

In a December entry featuring the Avons and in another entry featuring Freddie Waters I discussed the Nashville soul scene and how it is often criminally overlooked in the analysis of classic soul music. Today's selection, another Ted Jarrett production on Waters, was picked up by Curtom on the strength of its flip, the poppy "Singing a New Song." I prefer this side, however, for its low-down blues feel and passionate singing from Waters, who was a master of the slow burn. If anyone has ever been in love with someone who they know is the wrong person for them they will surely understand the dilemma presented in the lyrics.
