West Side Soul

CD (Item 463554) Delmark, 1967 — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock

CD


4.50 46

A classic bit of indie blues from the Chicago scene – featuring some great players from the second generation after Chess Records stopped picking up the younger local talents! Magic Sam leads the group on vocals and guitar, and he's working here with Mighty Joe Young on guitar, Odie Payne on drums, and Mack Thompson on bass – all to craft a set of rough and ready blues tunes that would have played well on both sides of the tracks at the time. Titles include "That's All I Need", "All Of Your Love", "I Don't Want No Woman", "Mama Mama Talk To Your Daughter", and "Lookin Good", a nice instrumental!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A real classic from Lenny Williams – most likely his strongest solo album ever! By the time of this set, Lenny had been out of Tower Of Power for a few years, working on his own in the west coast scene. But the real genius here comes from producer/arranger Frank Wilson – once a key ... CD

Odyssey certainly does have the melody – and that's always been one of the factors that's made them stand out from the rest! Even though the group worked largely in a territory that had a strong dancefloor feel, they always put enough work into their vocals and overall tunes to make for work ... CD
