Daddy B. Nice notes:Here is a sampler--reminiscent of the Beat Flippa's first I Got The Blues collection--that has bubbled up from the southern soul underground largely unnoticed. Ronald "Slack" Jefferson (producer for Jeter Jones, P2K DaDiddy and others) may or may not be the primary producer--I know he's on quite a few of the tracks--and that would account for the overall consistency of sound. Oh, my God. I just got it! Slack! Ronald "Slack" Jefferson! Slack IS producer Ronald Jefferson.
Well, you stumbled upon it here first, with your really slow Daddy B. Nice. Candidly, if you go back and read my profiles for southern soul artists through the last twenty years, you'll find I've always been more interested in conveying the joys (along with the contemporaneous farts and warts) involved in the process of discovering new musicians rather than researching them after they've become long-ago history.
I charted a song from the album last month without knowing it was from the album.
Daddy B. Nice's Top 10 "BREAKING" Southern Soul Singles For. . .
…4. "I'm What You're Looking For"----Luziana Wil featuring Crystal Thomas
This is the kind of music southern soul thrives on--from unknown sources with novel vocals (Luziana Wil)--music that embodies the obscure and scruffy character of southern soul itself. And who's the featured collaborator? Crystal Thomas, the lady I've called the present-day Thomisene Anderson for repeatedly giving just this kind of roots-real performance.
Listen to Luziana Wil & Crystal Thomas singing "I'm What You're Looking For" on YouTube.
Like plums for he picking, likeable songs are everywhere. "Just Another Day," featuring P2K, was also published in the P2K DaDiddy debut. "Teach You How To Love Me" is one of Crystal Thomas' best singles yet.
Slack may or may not know the late Katrenia Jefferson had a substantial hit with "That Thang". (They also have identical last names.) Nevertheless, Slack appears with Volton Wright on his own take of "That Thang".
Among other songs from the compilation vying for spots on Daddy B. Nice's Top 10 Southern Soul Singles for July are "Funky Blues" (featuring DJ Wildman Tim), "We Come To Party" (featuring Jeter Jones) and "Hoe To A Husband" (featuring Summer Wolfe).
And these tunes merely nick the surface of the material included in this amazing compilation.
