Sight + Sound of the Day
I've written before what a huge fan I am of Raphael Saadiq's retro-soul CD The Way I See It. I think it's the best of the slew of throwback soul discs (yeah, that includes Amy's and Mayer Hawthorne's.) What is blowing my mind at the moment is the way he's been able to sustain the life of the disc; it's well over a year old and is still dropping singles, still garnering live appearances on radio and TV shows. Unless you're Beyonce, that almost never happens anymore. The performance clip above is from NPR; the clip below is from an appearance on the "Today Show" last week.
