Soul-Blues Saturday / Dave Hamilton Week: Look Up and Smile!

Chicago Pete - Look Up and Smile

Dave Hamilton stayed in the recording business up into the 1980s, and his latter releases on labels such as Landy Bug continued to present some fine soul and funk on O.C. Tolbert and others. Today's selection appeared on Volume 3 of the Detroit Dancers series. Over a buoyant soul-blues beat, Pete delivers the song's warming lyrics with a confidence and smoothness that is only hampered by a bit too much echo. Look up and smile, folks!

Look out later today for the new podcast, and tomorrow we'll conclude the Dave Hamilton series.
