After Laughter Come Tears: Complete Stax & Volt Singles and Rarities 1964-65

I do not know if I can properly express my excitement for this release. If you follow this blog regularly you are no stranger to my appreciation for Wendy Rene. When I first heard The Wu-Tang Clan’s “Tearz” I had to know what the sample was that they used. And thanks to Google and Youtube I found out immediately. After I pressed play to “After Laughter (Comes Tears)” I fell in love instantly. I felt my heart clinched and my stomach drop in that good kind of way. I felt like I heard it before decades ago, even though I am only 25. I was in that time with sights, smells, and other nostalgia. A pure, rich, and rough song.

Now Light in The Attic Records, has a full compilation of rarities from Rene’s short career. I will definitely be making the investment for that collections. Thrilled!
