Detroit Cobras - Life, Love And Leaving

  • Sale
  • Regular price £16.99

Originally released in 2001, the Detroit Cobras 'Life, Love and Leaving' is the group's best-known effort, coming at a time when bands like the White Stripes and Dirtbombs were also releasing seminal albums that started picking up recognition outside of their collective hometown of Detroit. Hitting hard with songs by soul heavyweights like Solomon Burke (''Stupidity''), Mary Wells (''Bye Bye Baby''), Otis Redding ('Shout Bamalama'), the inimitable vocals of Rachel Nagy would no-doubt be a template from which folks like Amy Winehouse would work from years later. A landmark collection of covers. This reissue on Third Man features the previously unreleased ''This Old Heart' (originally by James Brown) an outtake from the 'Life, Love and Leaving' sessions, unheard for over 15 years.
