Update: William Bell’s ‘That’s My Love‘ as heard on Your Honor showed up on Spotify a few weeks after we published this article — you can listen to the song below
Iconic American soul singer and songwriter William Bell’s ‘That’s My Love’ was one of the songs licensed for the soundtrack of this week’s episode of the Showtime mini-series Your Honor — Your Honor, Episode 4.
The track was heard as Michael Desiato (Bryan Cranston) goes to the barbershop to tell Charlie (Isiah Whitlock Jr.) about Kofi — and there goes another character whose death could have been avoided if just someone had done the right thing.
Or, in Kofi’s own case, hadn’t done the right thing.
Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to find a copy of William Bell’s superb song ‘That’s My Love‘ to listen to anywhere online, as it is not a track that has been connected to Bell much before now.
With a little digging, however, it appears the song itself was initially recorded by Bell sometime in the 1960s.
It was then not released until 1991, when the track showed up on a little known William Bell album called A Little Something Extra (Previously Unissued Recordings from the 60s) via a The Stax Sessions CD, along with 19 other mostly previously unknown tracks.
Since then, however, ‘That’s My Love‘ seems to have disappeared into the ether somewhere, with the Music Supervisor of Your Honor obviously having music knowledge the rest of us don’t.
As a consolation prize then, although Bell the legend is never a consolation prize but always the best prize you will ever get, I leave you with a live session of three songs William Bell himself performed for NPRs Tiny Desk Concerts back in 2016.
At the time, he was 77-years-old but, watching that fabulous set, you would never guess.
The well-worth watching legal drama series Your Honor starring Bryan Cranston is currently airing on Showtime.
And yes, you can probably expect things to get even more convoluted and crazy before it’s all over.
