“Be Mine” – Alabama Shakes (2012)

As much as I enjoy great sound production, here is a band that proves passion, a lot of soul and one-take is all you really need. I bet you could have pressed two-fingers on an old home cassette player to record this song (and entire record) and it would still be worth every penny. What I love most is how the performance kicks in at the end and the jolt is so strong that the sound levels teeter in distortion — and they did not fix it. Sometimes it is the imperfections in recording a great song that make things perfect.
