Chapter 87: I'll Be There

70s pop, soul & R&B

By now you’re probably in the mood for a feel-good playlist; Bill Withers and the Jackson 5 are here for you, with a friendly shoulder and an outstretched hand. Minnie Ripperton is so in love, she soars into her whistle range with ease. Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye leave you uplifted even when they dig into the intractable problems of the world. Even Freda Payne glows with hope as she sings about loneliness. Best enjoyed up on the roof, on a sunny day.
