David Porter's "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" (Unreleased 7" Version)
David Porter's "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" (Unreleased 7" Version)

The first staff songwriter at Stax Records and named one of Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Songwriters Of All Time David Porter releases a gem for Soul music fans in 2017. The emotionally-driven and somber "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over" tells a vivid story of trials and tribulations between man and woman as one of Porter's crowning musical achievements. As a heavily-sampled treasure, this song provides depth and character to numerous Hip Hop classics from Biggie to L.L. Cool J and GZA.

As if this song wasn't cool and sample-able enough, now 2 alternate versions have been revealed and issued to 7" vinyl. These takes brought back from David's reels feature more cool breakdowns within the instrumentation of "I'm Afraid The Masquerade Is Over".

Enjoy the snippets below and get your copy of this 7" single here at Juno Records.
