Your resident analyst right around the corner.
I’m in somewhat of a minority of fans who really loves her original Someday even if her voice was still not polished like it would be two years later. I can hear her cold but she brings such passion to those words that it doesn’t stick out for me. I think this is a good example of a contrast between the ‘82 tracks; on the former 1969 tracks she’s not fully mature but wholly committed (except maybe Eve which sounds more developed), but in 1982 there’s the seasoned technical polish but she’s just singing them to sing them. Of course we probably wouldn’t be analyzing these as such if she lived and these were just another albums deep cuts. I think too what bothers me about the 82 songs is how representative they are of Richard’s (musical) mindset which was staunchly of another (commercial) era that would’ve had them dwindle further.I remember reading somewhere that Richard said she always wanted to re-record SOMEDAY and then she finally got the chance for one of their specials
