For The Love Of You 2.1 2LP


After the wildly successful first compilation of lovers rock covers of soul songs curated by Sam Don for the label Athens of the North in 2020, it was a no-brainer to introduce a second volume in late 2021. Unfortunately there was a licensing dispute with one of the songs by Sonia. To remedy the issue, the song was replaced by the equally gorgeous “Don’t Look Any Further”, originally sung by Dennis Edwards & Siedah Garrett, as covered by Byron Walker and Sandra Edwards. And without further ado, Athens of the North presents to you “Athens of the North Volume 2.1”!. Enjoy!
