Anthony Hamilton "Lucille" (2003)
Album: Comin' From Where I'm From
Producer: Anthony Hamilton
Anthony Hamilton's wheelhouse is the kind of retro-Southern soul that draws audiences into a nostalgic blanket. It's at its most effective when the songwriting is equally strong. On "Lucille," he shed many of the retro affectations that often define his work and relied purely on songwriting and the subtlety of his vocals to release one of the most powerful songs in his catalog.
