Old Stuff Friday - The Soul Corner - If You Want Me To Stay

Well the Soul Corner has arrived. I take this as encouraging: A dear friend of mine (he prefers the nom de plume "Anonymous") mildly chastised me this week for not yet getting to the Parliament-Funkadelic tree in the Soul Corner. All in good time my good man.

But we already had our choice set for this week and it was way too good to delay. This live stripped down performance of "If You Want Me to Stay" by Sly Stone reflects what a truly amazing artist and arranger he was.

This song has long been a particular favorite of mine, its vocal especially. I discovered this version this week and it is truly fantastic:

Nice choice...but "chastise" is too strong. I look forward to our next musical trip home.
