Daddy B. Nice’s Top 10 “BREAKING” Southern Soul Singles Preview
TOP 10 SEPTEMBER 2019
1. ”You’re What’s Needed In My Life” – Lee Fields
Wouldn’t it be ironic if Lee Fields, who left southern soul and the chitlin’ circuit for greener pastures in the “Little J.B” mainstream, should turn out to be the embodiment of everything southern soul strives to be? From Fields’ new album It Rains Love.
Listen to Lee Fields singing “You’re What’s Needed In My Life” on YouTube
2. ”Get It! Get It!” – Ms. Jody
Ms. Jody’s oh-so-cool, strong and “centered”–as they say (blush) in Boulder, Colorado–on this zydeco-flavored tune and on her new album of the same name in general.
Listen to Ms. Jody singing “Get It! Get It!” on YouTube.
3. ”Do You Hear Me Now?” – Bishop Bullwinkle
What a way to go out. With a rambunctious “Do ya hear me now?!” Posterity look kindly upon Bishop Bullwinkle. From his new, posthumous album, The Da Vinci Code.
Listen to Bishop Bullwinkle singing “Do You Hear Me Now?” on YouTube.
4. ”I Can Back It Up” – Choppa Law
I had this guy pegged as a “pretender” based on his previous work, but this song blew me away— the instrumental track and the vocal. Suddenly he’s a man among boys. From Choppa’s new album, No Strings Attached.
