Covers: Cryin’ In the Streets

George Perkins wrote “Cryin’ in the Streets” which was released in 1970. It’s a very underrated soul classic inspired by the Dr. Martin Luther King assassination and the civil rights movement. I first heard it on Sweet Soul Music, a CD released in 1992 to accompany the book by Peter Guralnick.
