Come Hear NC On Songs We Love: Roberta Flack
We've teamed up with Come Hear NC on a podcast series that explores North Carolina music one song at a time. On this episode, Merge Records co-founder and Superchunk bassist Laura Ballance talks to us about Roberta Flack's 'Compared To What.'
"This song to me is an expression of that frustration and powerlessness that people were feeling at the time. It's a protest song against the lack of progress in the civil rights movement and the general kind of political climate going on at that time."
