Ms. Jody - "I Ain't Gonna Lie This Time"

Ms. Jody says she was messing around and came home at 5:00 in the morning but her husband woke up when she tip toed across the floor. She was wondering what she was going to do this time, how she was going to get out of this situation. She said don’t ask me no questions and she’ll tell you no lies but to tell you the truth, she didn’t have no alibis.  She said that she’s not gonna lie this time; she’s going to tell the truth.  She said she was out with the girls and lost track of time…what a story!

I ain’t gonna lie this time, I’m gonna tell the truth! You can believe me if you want to!

Taken from Ms. Jody's recently released 'Talkin' Bout My Good Thang' CD.

Enjoy!!

Kirk Whalum - "Do You Feel Me"

While this may not be classified as southern soul, I hear it often on various southern soul stations and I love this instrumental sax song by Kirk Whalum.

Enjoy!!

Kenne Wayne - "My Angel"

Kenne Wayne has been singing for years and his first album came out around 1996.  Here's his bio as taken from the Soul Blues Music website (http://www.soulbluesmusic.com/kennewayne.htm):
Kenne Wayne (Landry) was born September 3, 1966. He realized he wanted to sing at an early age. As a teenager, he began forming bands and entering talent shows in his hometown of Crowley, LA. In his late teens, he became a member of a popular local band that played around the state of Louisiana.

After years in the local 'chitlin' circuit, Kenne' decided that he wanted more out of music than just performing locally. In 1995, he signed with MTE Records and released his first album, "Old Fashion Love". Not only did this album introduce Kenne' as an artist, it also gave way to his talents as a producer and songwriter. He has co-produced and co-wrote each CD.

Listen to the pretty ballad, "My Angel," which can be found on Kenne Wayne's The Licka Sticka CD.

You're my angel from the stars up above...made just for me.  I never thought this would happen to me.
Enjoy!

Mel Waiters - "Disrespect"

It still hurts knowing that Mel Waiters is gone.  I know that he will definitely live on forever in our hearts and that we are blessed with the beautiful music he's left us, but his passing still hurts.  Here's one of his latest songs from his "True Love" CD that was released earlier this year.

In "Disrespect," Mel wants to know how you think you're going to get respect when you got a bad attitude, you got bad ways, and you walk around with a frown on your face.  He said that you don't speak, you don't smile, seems like it hurts you to open up your mouth. lol  That's right, Mel!!

How do you expect to get respect?

Lomax - "Please Let Me Hold You"

Such a very pretty ballad and a nice begging song. Lomax is at a party and asks a girl to dance; he wants to hold her in his arms. He says, just let me say that I like the way you're holding on to me - what a line but yeah, that would work!! lol

Also love Swing It, Put It All Up In There, Second Hand Man, etc.
Enjoy!

The Legends & Heavy Hitters of Soul - Millie Jackson

The Legends & Heavy Hitters of Soul show was held at the Show Place Arena in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, on August 1.  It featured Nellie 'Tiger' Travis, Clarence Carter, Latimore, Wilson Meadows, and Millie Jackson.  I love southern soul shows and was thankful to have the opportunity to attend one in the DC/MD/VA area. 

The legendary Millie Jackson is a powerful performer.  She has a unique voice but that girl is wild, says anything and everything she wants, is a little vulgar, and is so totally cool. I had her I Had To Say It album and would play it from one end to the other on both sides! Millie Jackson helped change the music industry and was recently inducted into the 2015 Rhythm & Blues Music Hall of Fame. She started her set with no where to turn to, tired of being alone, I feel like breaking up somebody's home. She did a medley of songs: I've been too long in the wind, too long in the rain...; If You're Not Back In Love By Monday; Hurt So Good; a beautiful ballad written by Betty Wright; Leave Me Alone (she said just because she's alone doesn't means she's lonely); and sang her latest songs That Bitch Crazy and Take the bottle, shake it up. I wished she had sung Ask Me What You Want. My criticism is that her overall performance was ok but I was glad I had a chance to see her perform one more time.

Here's a copy of my most favorite Millie Jackson song, If You're Not Back In Love by Monday.

The Legends & Heavy Hitters of Soul - Latimore

The Legends & Heavy Hitters of Soul show was held at the Show Place Arena in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, on August 1.  It featured Nellie 'Tiger' Travis, Clarence Carter, Latimore, Wilson Meadows, and Millie Jackson.  I love southern soul shows and was thankful to have the opportunity to attend one in the DC/MD/VA area. 

Ah Latimore, I love this man and have seen him perform quite a few times.  He still looks sexy with his silver hair - he sounds the same and plays a mean keyboard.  I think he was the crowd favorite that night and is an awesome entertainer.  He sang songs that I wasn't quite sure of the title, but here goes: It ain't where you been, it's where you're going, it ain't what you did, it's what you're doing; Take Me To The Mountaintop (previously done by Lynn White/Willie Clayton) and he did a wonderful job with it; Stormy Monday (a blues song and boy could you feel the blues coming off his keyboard); My Give A Damn Gave Out; Bow Wow (I'm An Old Dog); and ended with his signature Let's Straighten It Out.  Latimore gives you a performance to remember.  Bow wow!!!
