Since the first Desigual T-shirt shown here has “When Love Come to Town” printed on it, here’s the song of the same name, written by U2 for master bluesman B.B. King:

U2 wrote this song for bluesmaster B.B. King

Here’s a bit of the backstory of the first time B.B. King played the song, which was later recorded at the Sun Records studio in Memphis, the birthplace of modern rock. It was where Elvis, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins recorded their first records.

And here’s B.B. King performing the song without U2 on a TV show called Live By Request:

One of the world’s greatest modern songwriters, Lamont Dozier, 81, died last month. He was first paid $25 a week to write songs for the then-fledgling Tamla-Motown record label. He teamed up with brothers Eddie and Brian Holland to form Holland-Dozier-Holland, one of the world’s most famous songwriting teams. They wrote 80 Top 40 hits, including 15 No. 1 hits for Motown, recorded by Martha & the Vandellas (Heat Wave and Jimmy Mack) the Four Tops (Bernadette, I Can’t Help Myself, Reach Out I’ll Be There), the Supremes (You Can’t Hurry Love, Baby Love, You Keep Me Hangin’ On and Stop! In the Name of Love) and former Motown drummer turned singer Marvin Gaye (How to Sweet It Is – To Be Loved By You – recorded in one take!). I grew up on this music and writers never get the credit they deserve. If you listen to the opening of this Supremes song you’ll hear this swelling Hammond B3 organ intro played by a Vancouver musician, Robbie King, who was a member of Vancouver’s Bobby Taylor & The Vancouvers, the only Vancouver band ever signed to Motown. This song, Does Your Mama Know About Me, was written by Vancouver guitarist Tommy Chong, who was dating a blond girl in 1967 and he was Chinese; he had the foresight to question if her parents would accept a bi-racial relationship. The band’s singer, Bobby Taylor, discovered Michael Jackson when the brothers, known as the Jackson Five, opened for the Vancouver band in Indiana. Bobby Taylor phoned Berry Gordy and told him he needed to bring this band in for an audition. Taylor produced the Jackson Five first two hit singles: ABC and I Want You Back. My parents lived beside Michael Jackson and his family in Los Angeles during the Jackson Five days.

Lamont Dozier, 1969.

October 14, 2022 update: Surprised today by this new Bruce Spingsteen video, performing a 1985 R&B hit by the Commodores, Night Shift, a tribute to Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson (both died in 1984). Bruce will start his first tour with the E Street Band, since 2017, early next year in the U.S. and Europe. Bruce also will have a new 12-song record of Soul / R&B tunes that rocked his world:

Bruce sings Nightshift. a 1985 hit by the Commodores It was a tribute to Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson, who both died in 1984. Marvin was shot dead by his father, a minister. Such a tragic tale that no one has properly told.
