Pretty Words Don’t Mean a Thing

November 12, 2010

From Detroit circa 1970:

MP3: The New Birth- Pretty Words Don’t Mean a Thing

Some good roots on the Ghetto Riddim, released in 2009. Gotta love the guitar lick:

MP3: Lutan Fyah- Gansta Living

MP3: Peetah Morgan feat. Busy Signal- Unfair

Bob Seger‘s cover of this tune was a Detroit radio staple when I was growing up. This is the first time I ever heard the original, from 1974’s Tellin’ It:

MP3: Ann Peebles- Come To Mama
