Today’s trax



I love you  –  Randy Brown (Written by Homer Banks & Carl Hampton – former Stax in-house writers, released on the short-lived Parachute Records – this lp was lost to most but a few Soul fans … however it was re-released on the small independent Threeway Records and has since turned up as a two on one – two lps on one cd)

Gimme some  –  Jimmy ‘Bo’ Horne (After a few non hits written by Clarence Reid & Willie Clarke – Label supremo Henry Stone decided to team Jimmy with the then hot writers/ artists Harry Casey & Richard Finch known also known as K.C. and the Sunshine Band)

All work, no play  –  Juicy (band led by brother and sister duo Jerry & Katreese Barnes  released three quality lps which has since been released on cd by a Northampton re-releasing record company  … they also wrote ‘Love in moderation -Gwen Guthrie  …  Jerry has become the hot Bass player in Nile Rodgers reformed Chic)

Sneaky one  –  Satoshi Tomeii featuring Deanna (Della Cioppa is her full name …  Deanna gives you a vocal performance that could only be described as perfection which also compliments the backbeat ‘like hand in a glove’ … from the lp/cd Full Lick came this corker … PLEASE NOTE : VIDEO IS WRONGLY ACCREDITED)
