Alice Clark – Don’t You Care

(click song title above to listen)

Frequently dubbed “the Holy Grail of modern soul,” Alice Clark’s self-titled 1972 debut album has received some serious overdue recognition in recent years. Clark – whose whereabouts following these recordings seem to be shrouded in a bit of mystery – only recorded three sessions that produced two singles and the one album. The record – highly prized among hardcore R&B enthusiasts – is an amazing soul collection that matches Clark’s distinctive powerhouse voice with impeccable song selection.

Recently this masterpiece has been lovingly re-released on vinyl, cd and digitally, and is finding her a much-deserved international cult audience. Bobby Hebb had three of his tunes cut on this disc, including “Don’t You Care”, which is one of our favorite grooves on the record. The album has often been compared to the best work of such diverse legends as Gil Scott-Heron, Janis Joplin, Billie Holliday, and Donny Hathaway. “The best R&B you’ve probably never heard,” hails one critic – we couldn’t agree more. Dig yourself some Alice Clark!
