James Govan – Wanted: The Fame Recordings

A ‘jump for joy’ release for Southern Soul buffs!  James Govan, the Mississippi-born, Memphis-bred soul singer, only released three singles in the 1970s and one latter-day album in the early 80s. Among connaisseurs, his rare 45s for FAME have long been regarded as some of…

Motown Spotlight -October 2018

Last month we visited an open-ended interview from Stevie Wonder used to help promote his ambitious 1976 “Songs In The Key Of Life”. Having abandoned plans to retire from the music business, Stevie with his signature fresh on a seven-year recording contract with Motown, took a year off to prepare for this double album release. …

The Bar-Kays – 1969 – Gotta Groove

Amazing work from the new version of The Bar-Kays – a group who reformed to become a combo as heavy as any of the best funky groups from Detroit, LA, or New York at the time! There’s a style here that’s a sweet Memphis distillation…

Buddy Miles – 1970 – A Message To The People

The prolific drummer’s most creative album, ‘A Message to the People’ can well be seen as the artistic completion of Buddy’s search for perfect funk-rock-folk-soul fusion.  Retooling Joe Tex’ “You’re Right, Ray Charles” into a frenzied, hard driving, brass drenched instrumental, Miles pays hommage to…

Etta James – 1966 – Call My Name

It’s extremely difficult for me to pick an album other than “At Last!” by the incomparable Etta James to jump-start what will most definitely be a series of Gems Of Jams to follow.  In choosing, I decided to go with one of my personal favorites…

David T. Walker – 1973 – David T. Walker

Sublime grooves from studio guitar genius David T Walker – an album that’s a perfect summation of the laidback, yet all-there sound he crafted for so many other artists over the years – finally cast out in the lead, and set up in a sweet…

Sly & The Family Stone ‎- 1967 – A Whole New Thing

In truth, this is Sly’s best album, an unrecognized wonder, a great lost album. After this bold new work, his music became simpler, here it begins at its most clever and ambitious. What sets it apart from his subsequent output is how eclectic and highly…
