Barrett Strong (born in West Point, Mississippi on February 5, 1941) is often listed among the One-Hit Wonders of music for his Money (That’s What I Want) in early 1960, and I suppose for some who only look upon Top 40 Pop hits as the…

The Mighty Clouds of Joy – 1974 – It’s Time

A landmark blend of gospel spirit and 70s soul – and one of the greatest moments ever from The Mighty Clouds Of Joy! Like so many other soul artists before them, these guys have voices that are steeped in the best traditions of gospel –…

Tyrone Davis – 1970 – I Had It All the Time

Whereas Tyrone Davis would never reach the same dizzying pop heights after “Turn Back the Hands of Time”, the man remained a R&B hitmaker, and a very consistent one at that. He was, by the time of the release of ‘I Had It All the Time’, truly…

David Simmons – 1979 – The World Belongs To Me

While his vocals are often compared to the late, great Teddy Pendergrass, most people remember him for his late 70’s disco hit “Holding Back” or for the more soulful “Hooked On You“. This album was produced by Butch Ingram and features many of his songs….

Mavis Staples – 1969 – Mavis Staples

Standout solo work from Mavis Staples, a set that really expands the Stax sound nicely with a bit of strings to sweeten up the groove! Steve Cropper’s at the production helm, and there’s still enough grit in the grooves to remind us we’re down in…
