One of David’s greatest songs was the powerful Sam & Dave ballad, “When Something Is Wrong With My Baby.” It was stunning lyrically, telling a song of empathy toward a lover that was powerful. And musically, it was a complete winner.

Now David Porter returns to the song with former The Voice singer and powerhouse teenage vocalist Sarah Grace. The new version is brilliant, and reminds of just how great a song Mr. Porter created a half century ago.

We’re proud to present “When Something Is Wrong With My Baby” as our newest SoulTracks First Listen. Check it out below and be sure to also find The Classics. You’re going to love it.
