Danny White 2007 Natural Soul Brother - The Frisco Recordings And More 1963-1968

Review by Richie Unterberger

Almost all of Danny White's 1960s recordings are contained on this compilation, including the A- and B-sides of ten singles he issued between 1963 and 1968, as well as a radio ad for his 1963 45 "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye." White has somehow passed under the radar of most histories of New Orleans soul, though he had some regional success with a few of his singles.

If you're into the '60s New Orleans soul sound, however, you should hear this, as it has several of the key attributes of New Orleans soul at its best. It mixes wistfully melodic pop with R&B and a little blues; has sensitive, well-crafted arrangements with deft horns, backup vocals, and bluesy guitar; and benefits from White's own gritty, lively singing.

If you're so inclined, you can hear echoes of far more famous performers -- some of the pop-R&B of Aaron Neville (though more in the songs and production than the vocal delivery), some of the soul-blues of Bobby "Blue" Bland, and (particularly on the toughest numbers) a little of Wilson Pickett and James Brown in their earliest, bluesiest days.

Often when a review is crammed with references to bigger and better names, that spells trouble. Not so here -- White might not be as famous or good as any of the aforementioned stars, but he's got a fine slightly raw, committed wail, and it's refreshing to hear this sort of classic New Orleans '60s soul given a tougher slant than usual. Also of note are obscure, but quality, compositions by several famous songwriters, including Allen Toussaint (writing under the pseudonym of Naomi Neville), Earl King (writing as Earl Johnson), and the team of Isaac Hayes and David Porter (on mid-'60s sides cut in Memphis before Hayes and Porter became one of the hottest American songwriting duos).

It's unfortunate that the CD is missing a few sides that would have made it a complete Danny White overview, most notably a couple Willie Mitchell-produced singles for Decca. In all, however, it's a highly commendable collection of a singer who has escaped the attention of even some New Orleans R&B collectors.

01 - Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye 03:09

Paul Gayten 2010 Ain't Nothin' Happenin'





Genre: Blues
Rate: 160 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 01:17:58
Size: 89,21 MB

United States

The unsung Crescent City bandleader Paul Gayten made the first New Orleans R&B recordings of the post war era and had the first local hit there in 1947. As a producer, he was responsible for grooming hit singers such as Annie Laurie, Larry Darnell, Chubby Newsome, Bobby Charles and Clarence 'Frogman' Henry and became an important individual in the Chess empire before forming his own label in the late 1960s. This thirty-track compilation traces the first half of his high-voltage career in the recording business and proves how necessary he was to the birth and development of New Orleans R&B and Rock 'n' Roll.

This album is as good as it gets for jump blues and swing fans. Every song is a winner and the record rocks and swings from start to finish. No smaltzy ballads or uninspired instrumentals here. Just straight ahead ballsy bluesy swing that sucks you into the groove and cooks. A tremendous album from an under appreciated master of the style. Anyone who can listen to Mojo Mambo without tapping their toes is already dead. Just a wonderful record that can be played over and over again and never disappoints. A must-have for any real music fan unencumbered by slavish devotion to a particular style. Highly recommended. (J. Dunn)

Fleetwood Mac 1968 Mr. Wonderful





Genre: Blues
Rate: 266 kbps VBR / 44100 from lossless source!
Time: 00:56:01
Size: 108,78 MB

United Kingdom

Mr. Wonderful at the time of it's release was stone cold blues-period. NOBODY on the British side and I dare say in the states put out this kind of raw blues album. It sounds like it's live in a club and the sheer force of Peter Green is overwhelming. Listen to Stop Messing Around, If You be My Baby, Love That Burns, Lazy Poker Blues, Rollin Man and you will find the B.B. King influence done on steroids. Fleetwood, McVie and the horn section are spot on perfect to achieve the atmosphere - a superb band with Christine Perfect sitting in on the piano - and she is subtle - yet present in every tune.

Spectacular tone, phasing, and raw power & hey - Green sings like he means it. He makes sure they are all having a good time. Jeremy Spencer does overdue the Elmore thingy - but who does it better? I mean really-who? He stays very true to the original spirit and sound. As noted by others the Duster and Pete acoustic song is a beautiful thing. This as a second U.K. released album places Peter Green as THE Blues Guitarist to be measured by. Nobody since has truly captured what he does on this album. It isn't meant to be a virtuoso performance technically - but for all intensive puposes - it is. (John Antonuccio)

Roland Stone 1997 Live On The Creole Queen





Genre: Blues
Rate: 233 kbps VBR / 44100
Time: 00:42:36
Size: 69,79 MB

United States

A spirited and entertaining live recording of a one-off show aboard a ship on the Mississippi River by a man recently out of extended retirement.

Having been a local R&B player with some successful records between 1959 and 1961, Stone left the business and lived in the "real world" until being contacted by old friends shortly before this show. They reunited, cut an album, then got booked for this special riverboat trip.

It's loose in places, but nicely so. The recording could have been better but the atmosphere comes across well and there is definitely experienced talent on that boat.

I would have known nothing of Roland Stone (born Roland LeBlanc around 1942) but for an ex-colleague who, on a business trip to Louisiana, saw him play in his native New Orleans shortly after this album's release. She thought of me and bought a copy from the man himself. Nice one! Thanks. (Dyve)

Alvin Youngblood Hart 2002 Down In The Alley





Genre: Blues
Rate: 320 kbps CBR / 44100
Time: 00:43:08
Size: 98,67 MB

United States

While of course Alvin Youngblood Hart has the right to do any kind of music he chooses, it would be hard to dispute that he does downhome African-American music best. He's in top form on this splendid recording, which harks back to the sound of his first. Like Lead Belly, Mississippi John Hurt, Henry Thomas, and Mance Lipscomb, he is a gifted bluesman but not only a bluesman. He is also immersed in the older rural traditions out of which the blues emerged a century or so ago.

Thus, for two examples, the riveting renditions of the deep-folk songs "Deep Blue Sea" (not to be confused with the Tommy McClennan "Catfish Blues" variant of the same name) and "Chilly Winds." Though credited to Odetta, the latter is actually a cobbling-together of the title song (ubiquitous in both black and white tradition), "Pea Vine Whistle," and "K. C. Moan" -- themselves merely versions of older songs of murky origin. Hart not only revives the all-but-lost art of African-American five-string banjo but also masters it. The result is a sound nothing short of exhilarating.

I like everything on this album, with one small qualification. Hart boldly takes on the masters, making even Charley Patton's "Tom Rushen Blues" beautifully his own. Yet Skip James defeats him, as James seems to defeat everybody who tries him. Hart's version of "Devil Got My Woman" isn't bad, but James's original has an otherworldly quality which manages always to evade capture or even reinvention. If somebody has ever done a better version of any James song than James himself, I have never heard it.

This quibble notwithstanding, this is the sort of recording one has a very hard time taking off one's turntable. It should make all who hear it grateful that Hart is a relatively young man and that there's more -- plenty more, one hopes -- where it comes from. (Jerome Clark)
