Goldmine premieres a new video by Chris Pierce called “Don’t Fight It,” featuring background vocals by The Grateful Dead’s Donna Jean Godchaux.
Pierce also co-wrote the hit song “We Can Always Come Back to This,” which was prominently featured on the #1 U.S. Primetime NBC TV hit show “This Is Us” (nominated for 11 Emmys). The song charted at #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart, as well as in the Top 20 on the Billboard Rock and R&B charts.
The video for “Don’t Fight It” is a collage of vintage/retro footage celebrating life and dancing to the music. Watch it below.
“Don’t Fight It” is a Wilson Pickett classic, and it’s key inspirational lyric –“you’ve got to feel it!” – provided the album title and muse for Pierce’s ultimate 60’s/Muscle Shoals vintage soul album.
Pierce recorded iconic, re-imagined soul covers in Muscle Shoals with the legendary Swampers, Muscle Shoals Horns and Shoals Sisters; named by Leon Russell and immortalized by Lynyrd Skynyrd in “Sweet Home Alabama,” the Musicians Hall Of Famers defined the classic R&B soul sound in its 60’s and 70’s heyday.
