I recently had the chance to listen to the newest Putumayo World Music release, Rhythm and Blues.
Rhythm and Blues features not only generation legends such as Lavelle White but also new stars of today's retro R&B movement such as Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings. (For you who might not know her she was called the "Queen of Funk" by British enthusiasts during a tour in 1999) Now when you hear R & B, you might be thinking of recent years, but rewind the clock back to the the 50's and 60s for this one. It's the real deal, not the newfangled cr stuff. ;) This is a good CD to hang out and listen to in the evening after dinner and relax.
Here's the track listing:
Lavelle White "I've Never Found a Man to Love"
James Hunter "Til Your Fool Comes Home"
Cracked Ice "Sweet Feeling"
The Quantic Soul Orchestra featuring Kabir Who Knows
The Emotions "My Honey and Me"
Sam Moore, Keb' Mo' and Angie Stone "Wang Dang Doodle"
Catherine Russell "Put Me Down Easy"
Ruthie Foster "'Cuz I'm Here"
Snooks Eaglin "A Mother's Love"
Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings "100 Days, 100 Nights"
Rockie Charles "Before I Find the Right Girl for Me"
Irma Thomas with Henry Butler "River Is Waiting"
The suggested retail price is $14.98, but Amazon has it for $13.99 as of this posting.
