When i first heard James Carr sing Love Attack i was hooked.It took me a while before i discovered Deep Southern Soul as a genre unto itself and with a little help from Dave Godin and the excellent Peter Guralnick book Sweet Soul Music i started on my journey.Voices are generally raw and filled with emotion,it's blues mixed with country and a helping of gospel to lift you up or tear you down.This small compilation of songs has a couple of classics and i hope gives you some idea of how important this form of soul is in the history of modern music.I will never stop appreciating how good this artform is x
