Father We Need Some Help Down Here
Daddy B. Nice notes:Who doesn't love them some "I Can Do Bad By Myself"? It never grows old. Impossible not to like. And who doesn't delight in the humorous truths Jesse dispenses in "If He Can't Hold His Pants Up How Can He Hold You Up"? And who can resist "I Lost My Baby On Facebook," Daddy B. Nice's #1 Southern Soul Song of 2014? The guy just finds the right themes and delivers them with the purity and sunlit highlights of a mountain brook. Well...Jesse's back with another timely social message: "Father We’re Having Trouble Down Here". His vocal is as inspiring as ever, with a full-blown, orchestral arrangement and background singers. (For pedigree think of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On?") "You Don't Know Who You Sleeping With," originally written and produced by James and his producer Felton Pilate for Shirley Diamond on the Gunsmoke label, is given an especially fine treatment by Jesse. The title track ("Put A Claim On You") and a couple of other new tunes make this a rare and enticing EP as long as you realize this is an old-school artist with old-school ways, operating out of the nooks and crannies of the sprawling R&B market.
Listen to all the tracks from Jesse James' I PUT A CLAIM ON THAT THANG EP at Gunsmoke Records.

Daddy B. Nice's Top 10 "BREAKING" Southern Soul Singles Review For. . .
1. "I Lost My Baby On Facebook"--------Jesse James
What a message! What a melody! Deejays will get two versions. The first begins like "Summer Madness" (good) but doesn't fulfill. The "remix" is better, with more southern soul-style instrumental fills and more of James' double-tracked, mahogany-rich tenor. This is James' best record since "I Can Do Bad By Myself" and his best vocal ever.
