A somewhat nostalgic look at rediscovered classics. The only rule is that each recording be at least ten years old. This is our comfort music. Brought to you by Pel, raven + crow studio, and friends.

R-2348108-1324469159.jpegWell that didn’t take long, things are already getting a bit meta around here. Yeah yeah, I know, meta?! Does anyone still even say that? What is this, the aughts? That would barely even make the 10-year cut-off rule for this site.

Fortunately, my poor use of forgotten memes notwithstanding, we’re in safe territory here as this particular song most definitely fits the bill for Forgotten Favorite.

Troy’s post earlier this week reminded me of Norma Fraser‘s excellent reggae cover of this Cat Stevens‘ classic. “The First Cut Is The Deepest” is probably one of the most covered songs ever, and I would argue that this version is amongst the finest.

Why? Because it’s pretty, rocks steady, and makes you want to move. What else could you ask for on a Friday afternoon?
