My search is over - SOUL TIME 114

Alberta Baker

This is a real obscurity from Miami – the only 45 I know by Alberta Baker. But "My Search Is Over" deserves a far wider audience for its quality and power. Over a dead slow rhythm she sings with regret and sorrow – completely at odds with the lyrics she describes when finding her true love. The downward cadence of the chord changes is terrific as is the playing of the lead guitarist and the horn arrangement. Mid 60s for sure.






My search is over / I have something ~ SOUL TIME 114 (mid 60s)
