||"Tell It Like It Is"
Honey flavoured sweet soul from American legend and New Orleans, Louisiana recording artist Aaron Neville. This classic rendition of the soul standard ''Tell It Like It Is'' from 1966 shows off Aaron's occasional distinctive vocal tones in super fine delivery, assisted by a wonderful arrangement of tinkling piano, melancholic baritone sax and gently plucked guitar. This particular version may not reach the dizzy heights of the later 1969 cover version from femme fetale Betty Swann but it will nonetheless still be a huge diamond in your jewellery box of soul gems.
