Though Dionne Warwick famously proclaimed that ‘Friends Can Be Lovers’, ever-dependable SARGENT TUCKER (above) examines the conundrum once again. On his new single he asks, ‘Can Lovers Be Friend?’
The song is a sweet, sophisticated and lovely little thing that allows Mr T to show off his vocal skills -smooth and soulful for sure; then there’s a captivating, jazzy piano solo – the cherry on this delightful soul cake.
This ‘Can Lovers Be Friend?’ is another Sargent Tucker recording retrieved from his former label. It’s released 19th January and comes with a big 2024 thumbs up!
