✨✧ Jimmy HelmsJimmy Helms (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Oracle/Creole Stream (Japan), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Early work from Jimmy Helms – an American soul singer, but one who recorded more famously later on in the UK – heard here on his full length debut! The set was put together at a time when Jimmy was getting some exposure on the Merv Griffin Show (the cover shot is from one appearance) – and the style here is kind of a hip blend of jazz and soul, wrapped around a nice mix of familiar tunes and even better unusual ones! Helms later had fame on the stage, and he's definitely got an expressive style of singing – a mature mode that's different than crossover soul singers of the time, and which has echoes of hip cats like Walter Jackson and Arthur Prysock in both his phrasing, and some of the arrangements he gets on the tunes. Titles include "I Was A Boy When You Needed A Man", "Like A Young Bird", "Listen", "Iliane", "Air Of Confusion", "Until It's Time For You To Go", "Light My Fire", and "Hey Jude". CD
