Description
My 'Soul' music idol's are Sam Cooke,Bobby Womack and Johnnie Taylor. The list is longer but these 3
are special to me. This track is my
tribute to these 'artist' of soul.
I worked to incorporate the 3 simular, yet different styles of each
singer.
I played simple soul piano over
soul/blues guitar. The most important part of the track, was singing the background vocals in the style of the "Soul Stirrers".
Just my way of saying thanks to
these 3 legends.

Thank you
CR

Well Done
Love the vocals. I'm listening in headphones and they
sound very, very fine. At the same time, the bass seems a
bit heavier than it needs to be. (But might sound ok in
speakers, I haven't tried that.)
CR said 4467 days ago (May 31st, 2005)
Well Done
As alway's,
Mongo you show my music a great deal of attention. Appreciate it!

Soul Power
Man, You have got some serious vocal an lyrical tallent
dripping from your microphone. I love the compositions
you keep throwing at us. Very nice tribute and I must add
that asside from your writting and musical tallents your
voice seems to really make the songs you write and
perform. You know your thresholds and are able to really
fill the voids vocally. -SOUL POWER-

Soul Power
First, Thank You very much!
This music is in my head. After 'not' wanting to play
and sing 'soul', i decided to give in and embrace the
music i heard around the house growing up.
So thanks for the beautiful words. That review was
very thought prevoking. Appreciate your time Dig it Dirty

A great tribute!
You really nailed the vocal on this one Cecil! I hear all 3 of your idols in this one and you do them justice. Sounds great as always! (not sure where's the bridge, though -just kidding- inside joke! haha!)
Check out my latest song called Big Yawn (Apogee One mic demo)
CR said 4466 days ago (May 31st, 2005)
A great tribute!
Thanks Jim,

OH ! NO ! not the 'B' word !
Now that made me laugh !
Appreciate the positive vibe. I dig your music,
and style. Your track "Rambler" started me to
thinking about doing something with a folkish/
bluesey feel. I like that 'airy' texture.
Once again, thanks.

Classic 60's soul...
that captures that era. I found myself back on the dance floor... dancing (and a little squeezing and huggin). This very much reminds me of the kind of songs that were requested for our band to play near the end of a dance. Slow, soulful, and lovin'.
By the way, although your vocals are dynamite, your guitar work is vintage soul/R&B and really underpins your singing. So well done... (in the distance a faint horn section with a few chosen stabs accenting the chorus maybe?) Only dreaming.

Classic 60's soul...
Thank you Jack,
As far as those horns go,you must be reading my mind ! . I did'nt want to cheapen a classic sounding track with synthesizer horns ( even thought some don't sound bad). But i do think about that 'Muscle Shoals' horn
sound. The 3 artist i mention in the tribute used that famous
horn section from Alabama. Good call jack !

Thanks

Those Horns
Those horns sound as if they were crying.
So sad, yet profound in the way they help express the
singers desire to please his woman.

Thanks for the download jack,

Motown
Your voice lifts this to a really nice song. You have a voice that would fit right in with the artists from Motown. Very, very cool man:-)

If you got a bunch of old timers with you and did a recording session I bet it would be like the real thing.

Motown or Stax ?
Thanks Thoddi,
You make some very keen observations !
And being a 'blues' man your-self, iam honored.
If the "Old Timers" need a voice, iam here !
Thoddi, iam going to listen to some tracks of
yours now. Starting with " Clever Conversation".

Thank you
CR

Now
yer talkin!!! this is my favorite sound in the whole world...I think I like
this even more than my beloved blues...old style soul music is timeless
and it appeals to every age...playing the old motown hits, james B,
tunes and such for these many years i have seen every type of human
being bop and groove to this style music.

This sound like it could have come from muscle shoals around 1970 or
so! I try to write these kind of soul ballads all the time, and it is
ridicuously hard. and this song nails it!!!!

Highest marks from me, my brother!!!

you also seem to be a devotee of the rev al green. I would die to be
able to sing like this...you should definatly hook up with my guy
KLUV...it would be mind blowing...

here is a link to a page where you can hear kenny sing some...I played
in this band for the last 7 years or so...

New similar artist
if you have liked it then you should listen to this new song Betty jean from a new Soul artist "The Soul of John Black". He reminds me of 70's great Curtis Mayfield. You can download his song Betty Jean for free here.
