New Single from Rosalyn Candy


Hey, Daddy B Nice—

I’m hoping that you’re having a great day full of positivity! I continuously wish nothing but the best for you regarding your health. Thank you for the tribute to DeMond Crump. His wife enjoyed reading it and was so delighted that you took out the time to write such nice things about him and recognize his music contributions. His death has really made me stop and think. Its moments like that when reality kicks in and it’s self explanatory that we all need to be focused on sowing good seeds and leaving behind a legacy.

Well, I won’t bore you by rambling on and on with my thoughts. I’m sending you out a new single by Miss Rosalyn Candy. I wrote this and Rosalyn’s boldness, creativity, and sensuality came through. I also wrote I Wanna Feed Ya and Southern Soul Party. She’s such a pleasure to work with. Very confident yet so humble and appreciative. This one is for the grown folks, lol. Below you’ll find the cover and mp3. This Louisiana native definitely knows how to turn heads and make a person’s ears tune in. I’m blessed to be able to call her a business associate and a good friend. (I’m rambling again, ugh!)

Thank you for your time. Most importantly, thank you for all that you do to shine the spotlight on southern soul artists. You have a way with words and definitely should’ve written a few bestsellers. Take care,

Jennifer Bosschick

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Thanks for the kind words, Jennifer. You wrote “Ooh Aah”? Good for you! Believe it or not, Rosalyn had already submitted that song to me and we’ve already had an extended conversation about it. I think it will be one of her best yet.

Jennifer replies:

Yes, she told me after I told her I submitted the song. LOL. Yes, I wrote it. Take care of yourself and thank you for the response!

Listen to Rosalyn Candy singing "Ooh Aah" on YouTube.

DeMond Crump Passes



Daddy B. Nice,

I just wanted to let you know that we are saddened and preparing for the burial of DeMond Crump who recently passed away. He was always sooo excited to be featured in your newsletter. We hope that his music will be remembered and listened to for years to come. A kind soul has left this earth. Thank you for all that you did for DeMond.

God bless.

- Jennifer Luckett-Scott

Daddy B. Nice replies:

I'm so sorry to hear that. I will post this for the readers.

Read the obituary.

Where's O.B.?

Hi Daddy B Nice,

Where's O.B. Buchana on the New Generation chart? Most of the picks are right on, but this is a serious omission.

Sidney

Daddy B. Nice replies:

I feel for ya, Sidney. O.B.'s not the only major artist who doesn't get spotlighted on the new chart listing today's top artists. The best answer I can give you is that the whole reason for the new chart is to feature the artists who have been overlooked and who are doing the finest work at this moment in time. These artists have been buried at the bottom of old charts or not even been presented on previous charts. It's their turn for recognition. I've already published two extensive artist guides on O.B. Buchana, and I've published CD reviews of just about every album he's ever released. There's not much new I can say about O.B. without repeating myself, and his lofty #6 on the 21st Century Southern Soul chart sure looks better than a lower ranking would on the new chart.

Looking For A Song Letter (A Reader Responds)

August 20, 2022:

Hello Daddy B. Nice,

I hope you are doing well. I've been hearing two songs by J Dallas named Swingout Party Tonight and Saddle Up. Bubba Yae plays them usually on Sunday afternoon and he has confirmed they are by J Dallas. I have tried to contact J Dallas by email and Facebook messenger several times trying to purchase these two songs but have yet to hear back from him. Since you are a major personality in the industry, is it possible for you to get me copies of both of them. I really would like to add them to my playlist and is willing to purchase them if necessary. I look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks and best regards,

Kevin

DJ Sir Rockinghood Replies:

J. Dallas dropped a new album Mr. Step And Stomp Himself, Aug 6, 2022. I tried to find the songs that Kevin was talking about and nothing shows up. Maybe he has the wrong song titles of the songs but the album is on Amazon music.

Daddy B. Nice Gets Chatty With David Brinston

RE: Your Poundtown Album Review

Daddy B. Nice,

You know me, I'm normally quiet and behind the scenes. Today, I'm finally breaking my silence. First, "Daddy please be nice!" During the pandemic, I spent a lot of time in the studio focusing on my music and not my appearance! So, I thank you for the mustache advice (Lol). My music has been "all over the place" to some degree; however, it is original David Brinston. I've been on a long journey that took me in different musical directions to find my true path. Especially, after all my former Producers earned their wings. Now, I've gone full circle - back to my roots of Blues, Soul, Country with a hint of Gospel. I'm enjoying every minute of it and I'm especially grateful for all of the David Brinston Fans out there who have supported me over the years and through my transformation.

Vr,
David
DAVID BRINSTON, CEO
Delta Down LLC

PS: Please call Terry at ------. I'm interested in buying a promotion package on DaddybNice. Again, thank you for your review of the Poundtown CD. We look forward to hearing from you.

Daddy B. Nice replies:

David,

It’s so good to hear from you after all these years. I’m kinda chuckling and giggling when I think that it was a remark about your mustache that brought you to write. Yes that was a little Daddy B Mean, although it was just me trying to be funny. I’ll go back and take that it out if you like. Ironically, I have what I call an “upside-down mustache”. It’s positioned where a goatee would be, under the lower lip, but it wraps all around the lower lip like an upside-down mustache. God knows what people really think of it. I’m glad there’s no other Daddy B Nice to tell me. I keep it because I want some hair on my head now that I’m bald on top.

I want you to know how much I appreciate you. Twenty, twenty-five years ago, when I was just getting my feet wet and trying to understand if I’d really stumbled upon a genre that no one (outside of the Deep South) knew about ( a process that took years), there were about a dozen songs that sealed the deal. That tipped the balance. That motivated me to go all in and make it my passion. And “Party Til The Lights Go Out/Nothing But a Party” was one of those key records. Phenomenal. I’ve never grown tired of it. Magic captured. “Kick It,” of course, was a close #2. And correct me if I’m wrong, but you don’t possess the rights to those songs, I’ve assumed, because you’ve never re-issued them. I always wondered who Marshall Jones (the producer) was and have only seen him mentioned a couple of times in the two decades since then. Of course I’ve liked lots of the music since then as well, but those two songs will always hold a special place in my personal southern soul heaven.

Best wishes…

David Brinston replies:

Thanks so much for your response. I do own the rights to all the songs that you mentioned. Yes, Marshall Jones did the tracks. I’m planning to include those songs in my “ David Brinston’s”s greatest hits.”

New MixTape Deejay on YouTube

Hello,

I'm a DJ in the Washington DC Area, We are really getting into southern soul, and I'm one of the DJ's on the forefront. Please take a listen to some of my mixes on Youtube.

Listen to DJ Big Stew mixtapes on YouTube.

Stewart Yates

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Always glad to welcome a new deejay to southern soul's big tent. When I think of southern soul and DC, I think of the late great Frank Mendenhall, who had ties to the area. I think of Lamont's Entertainment Complex in Maryland, where so many great shows were held. And there was a longtime deejay in the DC area who promoted southern soul through the last couple of decades, through thick and thin (and a lot of thin compared to today's booming scene). His name escapes me at the moment, which is frustrating me to all get out.

Listen to Frank Mendenhall singing "Time" on YouTube.

Stewart replies:

I'm regular Dj @ Lamonts, and I think you are talking about Dr Nick on WPFW radio ... Or maybe the Moon Man .... And thank you for welcoming me!!!

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Moon Man, that's it. I've had Moonman Radio on my Links page for years, and I remember his voice well from the days he broadcast over the Internet.

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Sorry, Kevin. I've been on the look-out for those two songs by J. Dallas in both my mail and on YouTube but haven't seen either for sale or streaming yet. J. Dallas is a new artist coming on strong, though, and if you're patient I'm sure you'll see them coming available in the near future. Of course you can ask Bubba Yae as a last resort. He obviously has copies.

Quality (Re: The New Generation Chart Top 100 Countdown)

Pictured: Calvin Richardson

We have been watching your charts for a while and we realize that this chart and selections are ------. How can you have a chart and not have calvin richardson on it no time. Your entire set up is bias and ------. How do you have a chart and cupids song is not on there and he is on billboard. How do you have a chart and an artist like Stacii adams is on bill boards but not your charts and write ups. We don't know who is paying you for promo but 95% of your charts are -------.

Coach Jackson

Daddy B. Nice replies:

I've eliminated the nastiness in your letter with ------'s. There's no call for anger. It only distracts. Music is for fun, remember? And you actually like 5% of what I do, which is a lot! Maybe you can send me some of that alleged paying-for-promo cash to sneak Stacii Adams onto the chart. Huh? (Wink, wink.)

As per your other issues, I've dealt with the whole Calvin Richardson thing before (see "The Strange And Unique Case Of Calvin Richardson"), and Cupid is already on the 21st Century southern soul chart.

But since you or your group set yourselves up as the arbiter of "quality," I'll make you a deal. If you can come up with a creditable list of only 25 "new generation" artists, I'll publish it in the Mailbag. Just remember. This is a southern soul platform---not Billboard.

Hello!

Great website! I really enjoy it.
Big southern soul fan.

Do you still sell hats or t shirts? If so I’d be interested. I vaguely recall seeing that a while back but maybe I’m mistaken.

Stay classy,

Thanks a lot, Josh. No, I finally got rid of the hats and t-shirts.

RE: Appreciation For Your Concert Calendar Page


I just want you and your team to know you all do a outstanding job posting and getting the blues and southern soul events out to the nation. I’m in North Carolina i do 6 annual events and you help promoters and patrons out with finding good shows. North Carolina do not play much of this type of music so i may have 60 percent of my crowd from out of state. Continue to be a beacon of light for this genre of music. And the heavy hitters of Soul appreciate you.

I want to start off by thanking you for your support. I wanted to clear some of the information you provided to your readers about my career up. I actually debuted in 2019 with my first album Mama's Gumbo with hits like, Trailride Ready, Let Me Hit It. I teamed up with Sojo for my second one. Not a big deal just want my correct information out. Thanks again a billion times and keep supporting. More music on the way. Album is crazy hot, Game Changer.

RE: David Brinston's "Poundtown" New Album Alert

Published in the David Brinston Artist Guide

Hello my name is Derek Jones and I am the writer and producer for David Brinston's new album "Poundtown". As a fan of southern soul music, I have been reading you're columns for the last many years and always enjoy your work. I was extremely honored and excited to see the title track of the album grace your top ten singles for the month of March! The song Poundtown was an early release single and now that the entire album is out, I hope you get a chance to check it out in its entirety.

As a white southern soul writer and producer I have been intrigued with your recent writings about white southern soul artists. I am currently in the process of producing an album for a white southern soul artist, and life long friend J. Gregory. The project is going great and I am really exited about the music we are creating.

We both have been in backing bands for several southern soul artists much of the last 25 years. Among others, we were on the road with Frankie Mendenhall before his unfortunate passing and have been with David Brinston, off and on, since the "Fly Right" album came out in early 2000's. I am currently David's band leader with J Gregory on guitar. J.G. has for years been opening the shows for David on the smaller club gigs. He does his thing singing and playing the guitar and always goes over great.

We are presently in studio daily working hard and I would love to send you the finished product when we get it completed. I am also very excited about the 5 new tracks I have written and already recorded for David's next album that I just think are gonna be great. I appreciate your time and all you do for this music we share a love for.

Derek Jones

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Thank you, Derek, for your kind and informative letter. Yes, the music is black. And just as important, the "face" of the music is black. But there have always been soulful white guys like you and J. Gregory helping to make it happen. Thank you for your contributions.

RE: How NOT To Market Southern Soul

Greetings Daddy B. Nice,

I confess to venting a little here as I watch the standard and the quality of this genre going downhill before it has had a chance to rise. It is quite unnerving. There is a huge disconnect between artists and their careers, the main one being they are totally absent of the business of music. I attempted to show some that their mentality of Me, Me, Me, Mine, Mine, Mine and I, I, I will not benefit them in an industry in which 25-to-40 immediate jobs are generated around one successful song. If it only benefits that one artist, who in the other 39 remaining jobs would be interested in that particular artist's career?

I talk to artists all the time and they want me to consult them with benefits (free), but I do advise them to hire at least 3 people out of the 10 who can help elevate them, which would be a promoter, publicist and social media person. Here in Atlanta, they play the bait and switch game by announcing a southern soul night at a local club. After the audience pays their $10, the DJ only takes everybody to the cemetery without playing a new southern soul song all night. Completely bogus.

Here's what they don't know and why it is difficult both in the independent and major market. Southern Soul, by an unscientific survey with Nielsen, caters to north of a $50 Billion demographic. This audience between 25-years and 70-years old has that much expendable capital. It is also the genre that our (mostly black) community owns to create jobs, vertical business and vertically linked business.

The larger (mostly white) companies know this is a multi-billion genre we own and of course, in their usual model, they have not figured out how to take control, thus will not promote it in such a way that it becomes as powerful (as I predict) the British Invasion of the Beatles. The other side is, without the cooperation of our own DJs and artists working together for the cultural fear of each other, it also keeps it from flourishing.

These artists keep begging and asking for free stuff on a continual basis. They will not pay a dime towards anything they cannot hold in their hands. They beg people to play, share, help promote, put them on shows of all sorts, interview and give them highlight and visibility without the slightest regard that this is an industry in which a converged amount of professionals have careers in doing exactly what they want to do. However, they keep coming up with the sob stories and want these professional to help them promote an intangible product. The professionals, in turn, will let them know the type of budgets that will accommodate their need, but these artists cannot conceive that promotions are the intangible force that elevates their intangible product. They just cannot seem to put the two together.

They do believe in paying for studio costs. Anything past that is out of the picture. Let's face this. This is an industry with a real infrastructure (however fragile) and real people to make this whole southern soul genre viable and profitable. However, without everyone participating in the up to 40 jobs that a hit song can produce, the genre remains immobile and not very valuable to mainstream media, which is everyone's wish to penetrate. All of these self-serving patterns and me, me, me and I, I I mindsets have to change. In my humble opinion, this is what is holding southern soul down and keeping it from its full potential.

Is King George Also Known As The Rapper Yung Holliday?

Hello, I’ve been listening to King George …is he also known as Yung Holliday in the Rap Genre?

Denee

Daddy B. Nice replies:

You're on to something there, Denee. You know, Pokey Bear also came from rap/hiphop. Your question sent me scurrying back to YouTube and this is what I found. "When We Fuck" by Yung Holliday definitely sounds like King George, as does "Pisces (Trap Love)". These rap tunes and others ("Run The Streets," "Whole Lotta Money" and "Cell Block III") are produced (or "presented" or "uploaded" as the case may be) by legendary rap artist Too Short, who used to be one of my favorites before I got into southern soul ("Short But Funky," "It's About That Money" with Puff Daddy & Faith Evans) despite being one of the dirtiest-mouthed rappers ever. On the other hand, there's also a rap artist named Young ("young" not "yung") Holliday with albums "Path To Greatness" and "Holiweek"---not King George.

I can't confirm it with utter certainty at this point, but I agree that Yung Holiday is the rap alter ego---or rap forerunner---of King George, and here's why. First, in addition to sounding like him, the video to "When We Fuck" clearly looks like him. Second, Too Short, Yung Holliday and King George all have connections (King George and Yung Holiday as active artists) to Dominique Geiger-headed Ace Visonz, the label that has released all of King George's hits. Now that George has broke into southern soul stardom, however, I doubt we'll be seeing much of Yung Holliday.

Thank you so much, Denee for shedding light on the origins of King George.

The Love Doctor

I see on your website that The Love Doctor retired back in 2015. On Apple Music there is an album titled, Can the Love Doctor Rock You produced on October 1, 2021. The year and label says 2021 Lewis Clark (which I see is his real name). The album features some of his old songs and some Tyrone Davis covers. You wouldn’t happen to know if this is an actual album he just released would you?

Thanks,
Isaiah

Daddy B. Nice replies:

It depends on what you mean by "actual album he just released". If by that you mean---Did he go into the studio and record it? No, I doubt that very much. But...Yes, it is a bonafide album and it was published in 2021. As you can see by the album artwork---just a copy-and-pasted photograph with rudimentary text and design---it's a low budget affair with tracks that have all been published before (although there might be a couple of out-takes in there) and zero promotion.

Lewis used to write me but I haven't had any communication from him in a few years. I suspect that The Love Doctor (getting up in years) or his family may have released the set to bring in a little money, as well they should with "Slow Roll It" now passing the 10-million mark on YouTube page views.

Listen to the Love Doctor singing "Slow Roll It" on YouTube.

King George Concerts

What is going on with King George he doesn't have a concert until JULY what the heck. He has five must have songs and he's the hottest in the Southern Soul and R&B chart they ticket sales looking for him.

Ty

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Here's the kicker. The word is that King George is not accepting bookings until October at the earliest. That's a long time away. Either King George has the whole period filled with gigs still to be announced or he's taking some time off. He doesn't have a band (given the YouTube videos so far), which might impact some headliner-status venues. Which reminds me to suggest you dig through the other upcoming concerts. I posted King George in the supporting casts of a couple of other dates. I just can't remember if they've taken place or not.

Daddy B. Nice replies 24 hours later: Good news. Just received a new batch of King George-headlined concerts! See Daddy B. Nice's Concert Calendar.

LOOKING FOR SONGS LETTERS ANSWERED

Daddy Nice,

Who's sings the song "Get It Mr. Willy" and what is the actual name of the song? DJ's are playing it on YouTube stations.

Thanks,
Dewayne

Daddy B. Nice replies:

The name of the singer is C. Jones and the name of the song is in fact "Get It Mr. Willie." This information came from my colleague DJ Sir Rockinghood, with a little more searching on my part to find the Facebook page in the link above with him actually singing the phrase from the title "Get It Mr. Willie". Sir Rockinghood was researching the very same song for your prior "looking-for-a-song" request, "Blues Song Wish List").

Here's what he had to say about "Mr. Willie" and the others mystery songs on your "wish list":

Blues Song Wish List

#1: It is the very first song on the playlist, something about Mr. Willie (Willy?).

Answer: Artist: C Jones aka Mr. Willy song Mr. Willy not released yet.

DBN notes: And I would concur with "Get It Mr. Willy" not being released (although there's obviously a demo going around to select deejays). There's been no sign of it in industry media and after serious searching under a number of possible titles I couldn't find it anywhere on YouTube.
Back to DJ Sir Rockinghood...

#2: It is the 2nd song (around the 4:05-7:45 mark) on the playlist, something about Stoop Down Baby, How Low Can You Go

Answer: Artist: Certified Slim song Stoop Down Wit It from the 2021 album Certified Slim Vol. 1 (2021). If you use the 2012 version it will be slower.

DBN notes: (I had already confirmed it wasn't the original by Chick Willis.)

#3: It is around the 1:04:09 mark (about halfway through the playlist), something about I'm Knocking At Your Door.

Answer: The DJ sped up the song which changed his voice slightly. Artist: Larome Powers song Knockin'.

DBN notes: I'd answered this one previously. Back to Rockinghood...

#5: Shazam app says it's B.T. Crooner - Saddle Up, but I cannot find anywhere.

Answer: No B.T. Crooner but here are a few people who have done a song named Saddle Up.
1. Big Yayo ft J-Wonn
2. Jeter Jones, Volton Wright and R&B Pooh
3. LaMorris Williams
4. Mo' B The Prince of Urban Soul

DBN notes:

Hope this helps. I'll add another reason why you're made out to be a deejay, Dewayne. You have the persistence of a chigger.

And many thanks to DJ Sir Rockinghood.

Greenwood, Mississippi Representing

Shout out to the Greenwood, MS. For a small town in the MS Delta, it is the hometown, and a true hotbed for influential Southern Soul artists that have won and been nominated for Daddy B Nice Awards. It is the home of both the Jay Morris Group and Narvel Echols (both nominees and winners) in addition to Lady Trucker and James Redd.

Dirty Delta Entertainment

Daddy B Nice replies:

Right you are. And don't forget that Narvel Echols' "Pour Me A Drank" (Top 25 Songs of 2020 #5, and Best Chitlin' Circuit Blues Song/2020) anticipated this year's #1 Song of the Year, Joe Nice's and Sean Dolby's "Take Your Time," as a landmark, hybrid, southern soul/rap song.

QUICK HITS, LOOKING FOR MUSIC, ETC.

Order some CD music

Hello,
I would like to order a cd that contains Bishop Bullwinkle, ( Hell to the Nah Nah) and others.

Charlie

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Now, Charlie, you could've figured this out for yourself and probably have by now, given how long it's taken me to get back to you. But here's Bullwinkle's page on Apple Music, including his one and only album, in case not. You'll notice "Hell Naw To Da Naw Naw" isn't on that album, although the remake is available as a single. But if you're really a fan of the Bishop (and who wouldn't be?), you owe it to yourself to go through Daddy B. Nice's Bishop Bullwinkle #13 The New Generation and hear the unexpurgated original and find out who the man really was.

Name Of Song

Good evening,

My name is Ashley and I have a question, there is song called “I wanna slow dance” I’m not sure who sings it. Can you help me figure it out? I’m not referring to R. Kelly’s version.

Daddy B. Nice replies:

I'm stumped, Ashley. I can't think of a recent song by that title, although two from the past---Peggy Scott-Adams' "Slow Dance" and Chris Ivy's "Slow Dance"---come to mind. I'll put this question out for the readers unless you've come up with it in the meantime.

Blues Songs Wish List

Daddynice,

First, a little background. I am in Peoria, Illinois (almost halfway between Chicago & St. Louis). Blues radio stations are not available here, so I pretty much have to listen to blues stations or blues DJ's on YouTube. I have 5 songs that I have heard on different stations and hope you can help me identify the artists' names as well as the name of the songs. If there are electronic files that can be sent to my email address, that would be great. I, like you, am not on any social media outlet. Here they are:

#1: It is the very first song on the playlist, something about Mr. Willie (Willy?).

southern soul playlist by Christy B with Rockdablockdjs Djbigboy

#2: It is the 2nd song (around the 4:05-7:45 mark) on the playlist, something about Stoop Down Baby, How Low Can You Go

SOUTHERN SOULFOR THE WEEKEND

#3: It is around the 1:04:09 mark (about halfway through the playlist), something about I'm Knocking At Your Door.

TOBACCO ROAD SOUTHERN SOUL

#4: The video has been removed but some words are: Somebody's Watching Me, Got Me On Chill, Cheatin' On Her.

#5: Shazam app says it's B.T. Crooner - Saddle Up, but I cannot find anywhere.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Dewayne

Daddy B. Nice replies:

You don't have to apologize, Dewayne. You are listening to some great music. You would make a great deejay. You're right, when I saw how long your requests were, I knew I'd never have time. I was going to skim over it quickly and move on, but did you know, for instance, that that Christy B and DJ Big Boy mixtape where she says she's from WMER radio is located in Meridian, Mississippi? That's the "liver and kidneys" of the Delta! I was going to quick-reply that "Stoop down" was undoubtedly Chick Willis. That is, until I listened to it and realized it was a new person singing the words. This is music from the source, music so new and obscure even us cutting-edge guys aren't getting it. It reminds me of the old days (25 years ago) before any southern soul was on the Internet and us guys interested in it had to find it on the much-maligned, file-sharing sites, never knowing who it was or what the right title was. To sum up, I don't know who's doing any of this new music, but I'll put it out for the readers who I'm sure will want to sink their "teeth" into it. Again, congratulations for what you're digging up and listening to! You've made me happy just knowing there's still skads of music I'm not hearing.

________________________________

A recent request for info

A reader, Lionel from England, recently asked you about a song by Dee Dee Simon focusing on the word “Beautiful.” The song in question is “Soul Beautiful.” It is indeed more of an R&B song than Southern Soul. Some time ago, I played it for a few weeks with moderate success.

I believe it came out in 2019.

Musically yours,

Thank you Dr. Nick! Good to get the confirmation.

Song Information

Daddy Nice,

Who's sings the song "Get It Mr. Willy" and what is the actual name of the song? DJ's are playing it on YouTube stations.

Thanks,
Dewayne

Daddy B. Nice replies:

This is Dewayne from the "Blues Song Wish List" letter above, realizing after almost a month I wasn't going to get to his lengthy request above and reducing it to one single question. Once again, Dewayne, I don't know who does this "Get It Mr. Willy" song but I agree with you. It's damned good. I'll be on the lookout for it.

P.S. I just went back to the Tobacco Road mixtape (these are good mixtapes you're finding, Dewayne, as good as any blues radio) and voila! I know the song. It's the late Larome Powers singing "I'm Knocking At Your Door". By the way, the "Saddle Up" song you mention isn't the new Jeter Jones tune "Saddle Up," is it?

Dewayne replies:

Thanks for your reply. I will have to keep searching for the "Mr. Willy Song". The "Stoop Down Baby" song is one other than Chick Willis. The "Saddle Up" song is one other than Jeter Jones, but the "Knockin" is correct by Larome Powers. Keep doing your thing with the Daddy B. Nice's Corner Top 10. I look forward to it each month.

Thanks,
Dewayne

December 10, 2021:

Slow roll it song copyright

Pictured: The Love Doctor

Greetings,

I am seeking who ever owns the copyright and royalty to the song slow roll it. I've remade the song and want to publish it but I want it with the original artist playing in the background like I recorded it and want to see if it was possible to get permission to use it and contract stating all made off song will be slit 50/50 with us both and our estates. Please help me get to the rightful owner. It's called slow roll it by Queen Clymaxxx in youtube. I appreciate your time and assistance and may God bless you indeed.

Queen Clymaxxx

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Sorry for the delay, Queen Clymaxxx. You may have this all worked out by now, but if not, here's what you need to know.

There are two ways performers, writers and producers can protect their property, and both are called "copyrighting". Compositions (the underlying structure of the song, including melodies, lyrics, chords, etc.) are called “publishing rights,” while Sound Recordings (the fixed master recording and/or audio file) are called “master rights.” Music publishers and songwriters control the publishing rights. Record labels and recording artists (if they own the label) own and control the master rights.

In your case, you may have to seek permission from as many as three entities. Written by Sir Charles Jones (entity 1), performed by The Love Doctor (entity 2), and released in 2001 on Mardi Gras Records (entity 3), "Slow Roll It" became one of the undisputed Southern Soul "classics" of the new millennium. (You can hear Sir Charles, by the way, singing background on the track.) Getting to Lewis Clark (The Love Doctor) and Charles Jones---or their intermediaries---would be one way to solve your problems. If that isn't feasible, you can contact music organizations like BMI (Broadcast Music Incorporated) and ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers), which track requests for use of the artists' material. And if that proves difficult, your last recourse is to hire a specialist, a copyright lawyer who deals in music.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

RE: Looking For A Song: Is It Dee Dee Simon?

Lionel replies:

I heard the song on another channel on youtube, i would have sent you the link for that where the d j tells you it's dee dee Simon & you could obtain the song via her website? but i can't find it? is there more than one dee dee Simon? I thought you knew her personally that's why i was asking you if you knew the song & what's her website where i could purchase the song!

thanks!
Lionel

A reader responds:

Hello Daddy B.

I saw the question on your site about Dee Dee 's song "SOUL BEAUTIFUL" . That is actually one of her song titles from The SOUL MATE Album. ..Soul Mate is one of two albums in which she released on The same day back in Jan of 2020. Now although "Soul Beautiful" is also one of The T tracks but there's also The Album Titled Track "Soul Mate". The Name of The Other Album is Titled "AHH HELL QUEEN DEE"

DJ Melle Mel

That Lady DJ Productions

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Thanks so much, Mel. Yes, I do remember the album now. I forgot it because it was more urban r&b than southern soul like Ahh Hell Queen Dee. But I can see now how it fit into the mixtapes Lionel was listening to in England, which were more mainline r&b than southern soul-oriented.

And Lionel, yes! I did talk with Dee Dee Simon at a concert a few days ago. However, we had so much on our plate we didn’t get to it. But………..good news! I finally found the place you can buy it.

Buy Dee Dee Simon’s Soul Mate album (including “Soul Beautiful”) at Payhip.
