Soul connoisseurs will be stirred just by the opening bars of Isaac & The Soul Company / Can I Change My Mind.
Written by Barry George Despenza and Carl Wolfolk, the original cut of this soul gem arrived with US blues/soul singer Tyrone Davis in 1969 and is regarded as a classic. The passionate story of a man’s sudden regret, from confidence to insecurity, provides outstanding emotional richness as he pours out his heart and soul.
Swedish band Isaac And The Soul Company blow the dust off this 45 and invite fellow Swede Moneybrother to reimagine it with their signature sound.
The band perfectly capture the sonics of live recordings, extracting all the raw, soulful vocals expressions by Moneybrother and Isaac Kuritzéns.
“Being able to work with Anders Wendin aka Moneybrother, has been a joy. He is so talented and also has great taste in music. The choice of song was entirely Anders and to be able to make a live recording of the song in the Atlantis studio was the crowning achievement. We are so proud of this song” – Isaac Kuritzéns.
Can I Change My Mind is an excellent song choice to pull from the archives and lyrics that urge home singers to join in!
Aww, she didn’t bat an eye
As I packed my bags to leave
I thought she would start to cry
Or sit around my room and grieve
But y’all, the girl
She fooled me this time
She acted like I was
The last thing on her mind
I would like to start all over again
Baby, can I change my mind
I just wanna change my mind
Baby, let me change my mind
Can I Change My Mind is the first taster from the band’s upcoming album expected on May 13 – The American Soulbook – an album where Isaac And The Soul Company interpret and pay homage to classic soul music.
There’s no need to look for a stamp of authenticity here. This version of Can I Change My Mind retains its solid gold soul status.
