brenda


baby baby the touch of you / is driving me out of my head...
1969. η brenda και οι tabulations κυκλοφορούν στην εταιρία top and bottom αυτό το single που στο τελευταίο wax poetics χαρακτηρίζουν ''one of those rare sides that can simultaneously inspire passion between young lovers and a moment of tenderness between grown-up couples. plucked strings, fluttering flutes, and rising falsetto choruses trace a spectral mood around an arrangement that coalesces and disbands with the rhythm of unsteady respiration. and over it all is brenda, whose stunning vocal melts away the exoskeleton and lets you know that there's enough room in this world for love. and hers is a love you'd want to have. it's soft but enduring, childlike in its intensity, but grown. it's real''. μάλιστα. όλα αυτά.
the touch of you. [το σωστό link, όχι αυτή η μαλακία που είχα βάλει]. κι εδώ ένα λιγότερο γνωστό, αλλά το ίδιο δραματικό, μια χρονιά αργότερα: and my heart sang.
