Betty & Roy :: I’ll Be There

A love-struck slice of mid-tempo soul, Betty & Roy’s “I’ll Be There” is a timeless, off-the-beaten-path B-side that’s too much of a treasure to be lost. Originally released in 1964 via Eddie Floyd’s Safice imprint, the duo step in line with processional horns, shuffling piano, and twinkling, islandic guitar before getting swept up in a crescendo of their steadfast vow. It’s the kind of rare gem that, even if you’re hearing it for the first time, sounds like it’s been with you your whole life.
