Roberta’s Tryin Times–the patient tempo, simple and direct delivery, and rich vocality–is incomparable (Kalamu aptly explains why), but I have to say that Courtney & Jhelisa is a mean second. I don’t mean they bout tuh surpass Robert’s but they definitely surpass Donny’s and David Nathan’s versions. In fact, Donny sound like Donny with no country n western twang and Sweet Inspirations cannot save Nathan’s Tryin Times.

Definitely one of her lesser known tracks.

It’s not a rare statement to say that I come home from work everyday and pull out the “First Take” Lp. Side two, 3rd song “Tryin Times”. I’ll let it play and stare at the cover wishin I was old enough to take part in this generation of music.
