those "sad" records you play late at night

The arrangement on this is beautiful, treading a fine line between upbeat and melancholy ... David Ruffin, singing his heart out:

And I posted this elsewhere on here quite recently, but as "sad" Records go, this by Jimmie Delphs pretty much tops it for me - once again the combination of vocals, lyrics and arrangement, just beautiful:

Only found this recently trawling YouTube , thankfully haven't had cause to wallow in someone else's misery since I met my wonderful fiancé though there were many times  prior to that when this would have got a spin

I dont think i have heard a sadder song than when i turned over Masters of Soul - Do you really love me to see what the flip was like...   I've only played it a few times and then usually have to take it off before the end, its too much...  but if you haven't heard it before do play it right thro' at least the once (there are lots of versions of this song of course but i dont think any come over like this one)..
