ROBERT PARKER - I CAUGHT YOU IN A LIE

I love this subtle track from the great New Orleans vocalist who cut one of the most recognizable NOLA tracks of all time ("Barefootin'") the previous year.

The mellow groove and unusually sparse Wardell Quezergue arrangement has that just-behind-the-beat, woozy 3:00 AM sound that's the musical equivalent to a balmy gulf breeze.

from 1967...

Thank you,this is is a little masterpiece.
Really love the arrangement and the horn riff, which seems like a subtle inspiration to Dexys Midnight Runners playing style (though Northern Soul was surely a bigger inspiration)
