Freedom Is Just Around The Corner
Linda Tillery: Freedom Time
The spiritual opening does not prepare you for the funk that is about to come. Uplifting lyrics look to a positive future attainable only with hard work and sacrifice. This track opens the killer 2002 compilation from Luv N' Haight California Soul.
James Carr: Freedom Train
Classic soul horns along with a gospel organ lay down the foundation on this 1969 single from the troubled James Carr. Pick up The Complete Goldwax Singles for this track along with 27 other gems.
The Isley Brothers: Freedom
This infectious ode to independence is hammered home by a piercing horn section. Find it on The Isley's 1970 release Get Into Something, an album that's worth checking out for the cover art alone.
