William Bell – ‘A Smile Can’t Hide (A Broken Heart)’
taken from The Best of William Bell (Stax, 1991)
William Bell is quickly becoming one of my favourite artists who recorded material on the legendary Stax imprint. Having said this, I’m still lurking in greatest hits territory before diggin’ deeper in, a fallacy I intend to correct as soon as the day job stops ethering me. ‘A Smile Can’t Hide (A Broken Heart)’ is currently carressing my inner ear on repeat and my suspicion is that after hearing it you’ll fall victim to the same fate. Smile people: predetermination never sounded so sweet.
