#SoulfulSaturday Goes Deep ūüėČ

This week #Growns as we continue to celebrate¬†Black Music Month,¬†GFM wants to take y’all wayyyyy back on this #SoulfulSaturday with a timeless #Soul classic. Join us as we pay homage to a track that’s highly credited as “Deep Soul”. Here’s a bit of backstory. Memphis-based¬†Stax Records¬†execs were shopping around to see who could they pitch this serious, yet testimonial track to.¬†Certified #Soul sista’¬†Shirley Brown¬†cleared this legendary, infamous opening and vocals all in one take, and the soul groove later became the No. 1 record in the country.

“Hello, may I speak to Barbara
Barbara, this is Shirley 

You might not know who I am
But the reason I am calling you is because
I was going through my old man’s pockets this morning
And I just happened to find your name and number

So woman to woman…”

The year was 1974 and “Woman to Woman” spent two weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Soul Singles chart. Although covered by many, even with some response recordings in return, this classic will forever be credited as¬†Grown Folks Music and covered in #Soul.

“Now, rather you be cool or come out of a bag on me”…this is a #ForGrownsOnly classic!
