Bill Brown - Bip Bam  (Part 1) - Athens Of The North

Bill Browns super rare Brownstone release is one for the deep heads, less well known than label mate 'Everyday People' but just as rare and collectible. Shuffling sunshine soul its all about the groove and feeling. 500 copies only. One for the heads.

Bill Brown and Al Hall jr met around 1971, they were both in south central L.A and shared the same apartment building, also in the same building was Doug Carn and brownstone singer billy Wilson. These studio sessions were done at Paramount studios Hollywood where Al Hall jr was working for producer Art Smith a&c music. The main distributor for A&C was Accent records.

Man am I living in the past (only 60 years behind the times.  To me, "Bip Bam, (Thank You Ma'am)" is the 1953 Drifters' song.  And Bill Brown is the original bass lead singer of The Dominoes ("Sixty Minute Man"), who was also the bass, sometimes lead of The Checkers.  I thought this might be a 1950s previously unreleased version of Brown as a soloist, or The Checkers singing The Drifters' song.  🤪
