Rappin’ 4-Tay – I’ll Be Around (1994)

As the almost non-existent followers of this blog will know, I am a big fan of cover versions. But the attentive will also know that I usually conclude that the original is the best version (because there is nothing better than hearing what was in the composer’s mind).

There are occasional divergences from this rule and this track might be one of them. The Spinners’ original from 1972 (check previous post) is a blueprint for dance/soul music in the 1970s – a work of genius.

This track by Rappin 4-Tay adds a rap over a near clean sample of the original. It’s utterly perfect. The sun’s out, work is over the horizon, hey, I’ll be around.
