Morning Song – I Need Love

March 4, 2016

Put the bass line from “Gimme Some Lovin’” on rhythm guitar, add Motown’s classic four-over-four snare drum beat, a fat-yet-unobstrusive bass line, lead guitar fills straight from the Steve Cropper playbook, a horn section exactly like the Memphis Horns, mix it all up in a duet anchored by real-life couple Dwight Ritcher & Nicole Nelson, and elevated by Nicole’s soaring contralto, and you’ve got “I Need Love”—2:20 of infectiously joyous contemporary soul music that’s both indebted to and holds it own with the best of 1966.
