Take Me to the River
CD Source: Take Me To The River - Southern Soul (1961-77) (3)
Time: 3:41
Sequenced by: Explores Your Mind album
Honored by: RS
 
This song is now well known in both Al Green`s original classic soul version and Talking Heads` savvy, soul-pop fusion cover. Despite obvious differences in rhythm, orchestration, and vocal style, the groove just won`t quit. The Heads` version became a top 40 single in winter 1979, thankfully bringing both the original song and the covering group to the attention of much wider audiences than before.

This song was first released as a U.K. single in 1970 (it did not chart) and also appeared on the multi-artist soundtrack album, "The Harder They Come," which was first released in the U.K. in 1972. It`s slotted here because this was when it reached its widest audience in America.

"Gloria" is the only song appearing three times in the Timeline. This version is a complete reinvention of the original song by Van Morrison, recorded first by Them and then covered by The Shadows of Knight. Samples of the other two versions may be found by a Timeline search on "Gloria," but there is no way a brief sample of this version can compare with the other two.
