Charles Bradley & Menahan Street Band - "I'll Slip Away"
Charles Bradley tackles ‘I’ll Slip Away’ by Rodriguez (the subject of the Academy-award winning movie, Searching for Sugarman). Dating back three years before his defining Cold Fact album, ‘I’ll Slip Away’ was the Sugarman’s 1967 debut single for Impact Records. In Rodriguez’s hands, it’s shuffling, tropicalia-tinged folk. In Bradley’s hands and backed by the inimitable Menahan Street Band, it’s a vintage soul stomper. A side is produced by Thomas Brenneck and recorded at Dunham Sound Studio, Brooklyn, NY, July 2012. B side features the original Rodriguez version as remastered by Dave Cooley.
