-------APRIL 2017-------

1. ”Do You Want Somebody?”-----Alonzo Reid feat. LaKeisha Burks

I think of this as Alonzo’s “Struggling Lady” song. The guitar riff, the cradle-rocking tempo, the lead and back-up vocals are all perfect and could have been recorded around the turn of the century, when your Daddy B. Nice was blinded by the light of southern soul music. Alonzo was playing guitar for Marvin Sease at the time and LaKeisha was one of Marvin’s background singers. LaKeisha--who went on to sing with fellow Montgomery, Alabaman and most famous Sease alumnus Sir Charles Jones--had a vocal style as distinctive and important to southern soul’s legacy as Jackie Neal’s, and her superb, double-tracked singing here sounds just like she did then, the perfect foil for Alonzo’s similarly sophisticated country pleading. (Apologies to Alonzo for using LaKeisha’s drawing, one of my old favorites. DBN)
