You might be familiar with Tammi Terrell from her collaborations with Marvin Gaye on hits like “Ain’t Nothing Like The Real Thing” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” Unfortunately she was take from this world too soon at the tender age of 24. The year before she succumbed to brain cancer, she released a phenomenal soul record called Irresistible.
I was fortunate enough to find a copy while digging a few weekends back and wanted to share a cut from the album. While every track is worthy of praise, “What A Good Man He Is” happens to stand out as one of the highlights on the album. And while I’m on the topic of Soul music, I’ll be starting a new monthly this Thursday at my favorite little neighborhood bar, The Bus Stop. It’s called “Salon” and it’ll be a 4 hour tribute to all the soul musicians, known and not so known. Come by to hear some gems like this and other not so familiar hits from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. And if you want to make any requests ahead of time, please do so on the Facebook event here.
