More Back Beat Soul!
Eddie Wilson - Get Out In The Street
In a post from last week I discussed the unfortunate lack of a Duke/Peacock/Back Beat soul comp on CD (and I must now correct one point from that post; the producer of the Eddie Simpson sides discussed therein was Andre Williams, not Oliver Sain, although Sain wrote "Stone Soul Sister"). I picked up today's selection at the Atlanta Record Fair, and it is yet another Back Beat side I know nothing about. "Get Out In The Street" is a nice piece of "party" soul, with Eddie Wilson (about whom I know nothing) encouraging the listener to spend some money on some fun every now and then. A good message, if you ask me!
NEWS and NOTES:
1. Vincent the Soul Chef at Fufu Stew invited your ever-lovin' Stepfather of Soul to join a bunch of other great bloggers in bringing a dish or two to his inaugural Thanksgiving feast, and the end result is a spread that any music fan would be proud of! The Chef has the three-part(!) Thanksgiving feast online now - go check it out! Thanks again to Vincent for inviting me to be part of this great occasion!
2. This weekend I joined Brian Phillips to record the new episode of his Rockin' Radio program, The Electro-Phonic Sound of Brian Phillips. As you may recall, Brian joined me on Episode #20 of the "Get on Down ..." podcast, which was certainly a great time (as the pictures attest). I had a great time returning the favor for his show, and it soon will be available at Rockin' Radio; I will let you know when the show's on. In the meantime, though, make sure to check out his current show (the link to Rockin' Radio is in the links section), as well as the other great Rockin' Radio programs!
3. Thanksgiving equals days off from work and from school, so hopefully during the span of this week I will get the new edition of the "Get on Down ..." podcast recorded and put online!
