Out Of Stock

CD


5.00 11

Seminal southern soul from Jimmy Hughes – a classic Fame production from the early days of the Muscle Shoals scene – and definitely the kind of work that set the tone for countless imitations to follow! Jimmy Hughes sounds even better here than in his first batch of recordings for Fame – more carefully composed, and a bit less rocking overall – really hitting that sublime spiritual undercurrent that defined the sound of southern soul for the 60s! Production is by the legendary Rick Hall – who wrote tunes on the record, along with Dan Penn, Linden Oldham, and even Hughes himself. There's not a bit of filler on the record, and all the tracks are great – and titles include the hit "Neighbor Neighbor", plus "It's A Good Thing", "I'm The Loving Physician", "I'm A Man Of Action", "Midnight Affair", and "It Was Nice". CD also adds 11 bonus tracks to the original album – titles that include "Well Alright Girl", "Dilly Dilly", "Too Much", "Don't Lose Your Good Thing", "Time Will Bring You Back", "When It Comes To Dancing", "You Can't Believe Everything That You Hear", and "It Ain't What You Got".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
