Deep Cut - Scott Gilman “I Can’t Stand the Rain”


I was listening to Scott Gilman doing “I Can’t Stand the Rain” this weekend, and loving it. It’s from an out of print CD "Bo-Town Does Mo-Town" , that you definitely need for your collection.

Gilman is probably best known as “that guy that plays the incredible sax solo on Foreigner’s hit Urgent”. Here's a link to the video, just to give you a taste of his prowess.

His cover of Ann Peebles’ “I Can’t Stand the Rain” is the standout track on the Bo-Town CD. His vocals and sax work, along with Danny Mo’s incredible bass lines, transport me to another place.

The CD, originally released by Fast Track Records in 1990, is great, and well worth tracking down. It also contains cuts by George Leh and his Rockin’ Shoes, Boston Baked Blues, The Motor City Rhythm Kings and Taylor Made.

You need to get it.

That is all.

WELL - THE LIVE SOLO ON URGENT - IS RIDICULOUS - AND RUNNING AROUND THE STAGE - IT'S UNBELIEVABLE AND ALWAYS WILL BE. PS URGENT IS MY ALL-TIME FAVOURITE SONG.

It is great, isn't it? He's a master craftsman. Check out his youtube channel Quadrasaurus. A little different, straight up jazz, but it shows his versatality.
