A delicious morsel of Cold Blood..

Before you start thinking, she's a bloodsucking nutter - I am obviously talking about the soul-funk-rock group Cold Blood. In particular the album, First Taste of Sin (1972) produced by no other than Donny Hathaway and from the first track to the last it has Donny stamped allllll over it. One track i've singled out as a particular fav is 'You Had To Know'. A fantastic soul ballad that after one listen you instantly recognise it as Hathaway's production: from the surging piano, rising strings and powerhouse vocal; do I go as far to suggest the sister track to 'I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know', oh yea I do.

Here the track in its full glory, take a listen and bask in the soul of Cold Feet, and credit must go to lead singer Lydia Pense - sing it girl!

Cold Feet - You Had To Know

Check back as i'll be posting some more of my fav tracks and a very special album post - an LP that I have never seen on any soul blog. That must be enough incentive to come back ;)
