Found this gem of a remake at SoulTracks.com, where the accompanying story forgot to mention somehow that this song was composed and performed first by Tracy Chapman. Nevertheless, it did state that it was a beautiful rendition of the song, as performed by Nicole Henry and James Bryan. It’s just as intimate and soothing as the original, yet it seems to these ears as fresh as a brand new day.
Presented for your Sunday morning listening pleasure is “Baby Can I Hold You,” which is part of a new project for Ms. Henry. It is taken from a just-released project entitled Summer Sessions EP where she performs solely with an acoustic guitar as backup. The duo format, based on this song, seems to work well for her.
As always, leave your thoughts in the comments.
