Track of the Night: Ball and Chain, Anthony Hamilton

Strap on your headphones, or connect that laptop to the stereo. Here’s the first in what may become a regular thing. Given the pretty darn good sound from places like YouTube, SoundCloud, and the rest, it’s pretty easy to highlight a song I happen to be digging. Since I’m always on the lookout for new music, let me know what you think – and what you think I might like too.

First up: Ball and Chain, by Anthony Hamilton. Deep, soulful groove, andante, great background harmonies, and horns.  Good vocals like John Legend, but with a little less pop-iness. You can almost feel the vibe as he hits the road south. A guy I stumbled upon a few months ago. And hey, this song talks about apple pie while it serves up feeling.
