Leon Bridges – Good Thing (LP)

2018 Original Pressing

Man, there was some bewildering push-back when this album first dropped last month, as it was being compared to his first release, Coming Home. Well in the spirit of the #baseballvinylchallenge – we wanted to highlight Mr. Bridges’ sophomore album for being the beautiful “change-up” that it is. You see, anybody can throw heat, i.e. Leon’s debut album, but a real pitcher is someone who knows when to change up speeds, and master pitch location – to fool the hitter. When Primo Rick and I first heard this record, we half-joked about how Leon was gunning for Anderson Paak. Well this album showcases his mixed bag of pitches and makes him a legit ace for years to come.
