The Gospel According to James Carr

James Carr & The Jubilee Hummingbirds - My Soul Is Satisfied

I don't think the name James Carr is unknown to readers of this blog so I won't go into much detail about him. The latest Ace/Kent CD "My Soul Is Satisfied: The Rest of James Carr" features just about everything in their holdings for the legendary deep soul singer, including some gospel recordings he made in the '80s, of which today's selection is one. Carr's wonderful baritone caresses the pretty-standard gospel lyrics on this uptempo number.
