Al Wilson – Show and Tell

First Hit #1: January 19, 1974

Show and Tell is one of those songs that is, in most respects, quite good. The arrangement is solid, Wilson has a good voice, there’s nothing really wrong with the lyrics – though the hook isn’t entirely catchy – and it is, in all respects, an entirely acceptable soul single. There’s nothing wrong with it, there’s nothing that would make you turn off the radio and disgust, but it’s not really a classic. In the 1970s, you could buy music from Marvin Gaye and Al Green, so I have to admit to being somewhat less than enthusiastic about giving Al Wilson’s perfectly fine song another play.
