Z. Z. Hill — I Don’t Need Half A Love

Today’s song is from ZZ Hill’s 1975 album Keep On Lovin’ You (United Artists Records.) It was first released in 1974 as a single b/w Friendship Only Goes So Far which I would love to hear. The music arrangement, especially horns and guitar, is right after my taste.

Funny enough, Discogs shows the album assigned to the Funk/Soul genre. I would have added the Blues label, too. The other track from the album, I consider great is Who Ever’s Thrilling You Is Killing Me, an Allan Toussaint composition.

This truly versatile artist left us way too soon. RIP Z.Z.



And here’s the YouTube clip of Who Ever’s Thrilling You … the other favorite of mine on this album.
