Ollie Nightingale -- I'm In Love

I always loved this song -- and my unrivaled favorite version is the one with Wilson Pickett. Wilson's powerful delivery  never fails to make my heart beat a little faster. But when I heard Ollie's version, I got gooseflesh, too. Ollie sure puts a huge portion of emotions into this song.
You'll find the song on his album Sweet Surrender (Pride, 1973) -- available as CD 


The great Wilson Pickett, live

I much prefer Olli's version. I've never been a Wilson Pickett fan.

It took me a while to get into Ollie's voice. He has the grittiness that usually comes with a deeper voice, in my opinion. But Ollie sure has the power to touch one deep deep inside with an emotional delivery without becoming sobby.
