Music Monday: Al Jarreau, Tell Me


Play Tell Me

Today’s Music Monday comes from a vinyl LP Clara and I bought from a second-hand store while we were in the Blue Mountains in late July. I haven’t been able to get this absurdly-catchy tune out of my head since my quartz-locked, linear-tracking, direct-drive Technics turntable gave it a spin.

Al Jarreau’s collaboration with George Benson on Givin’ it Up is one of my favourite albums of all time, but I don’t know as much about Al’s back catalogue. I’m rectifying this!

The entire High Crime album is on iTunes/Apple Music and the YouTubes.
