I'll slip away
light in the attic
charles bradley tackles ‘i’ll slip away’ by the one & only hispanic bob dylan of detroit street-life, rodriguez, whose original is on the b-side.
dating back three years before his defining 'cold fact' album, ‘i’ll slip away’ was the sugarman’s 1967 debut single for impact records. in rodriguez’s hands, it’s shuffling, tropicalia-tinged folk. in bradley’s hands – known as “the screaming eagle of soul”, & for good reason – backed by the inimitable menahan street band, it’s a vintage soul stomper.
