David Hudson - The Royal Sessions - Soul Junction LP - Out Now

David Hudson - The Royal Sessions - Soul Junction LP - Out Now magazine cover

David Hudson "The Royal Sessions"

A late summer monday morning is the day choosen by those Soul Junction types for the official release date of the launch of their latest offering. Their last two 45 releases were both sell outs and while this release is a return to the lp format this one could make it three in a row.

If you enjoyed last years David Hudson Soul Junction single (Girl I'm Coming Home To) Something Good (which is the opening track of this lp - it certainly pushed all the buttons right here) you will be pleased to know that this release features yet more previously unreleased tracks from the very same studio sessions which were recorded at the Royal Sound Studios in Memphis during 1989/90

The track listing and featured clips follow below, the lp comes complete with a "Tribute to Willie Mitchell" written by Elliott Harris

Soul Junction Press Notes:

David Hudson has always been held in very high regard for the excellent southern soul releases which he recorded for the Alston and Waylo labels respectively.

It was during his time with Waylo that David was placed under the auspicious of producer Willie "Pops" Mitchell at his Royal Sound Studios In Memphis. Under Willie's guidance, David recorded his excellent 1987 album "Nite And Day" of which 3 tracks would later gain a 45 release.

A further album project was planned but before it could be completed the Waylo label had decided to pull out of the Royal Sound Studios, thus leaving the project uncompleted.

A total of eight tracks (with a long and short version of one of the songs) had been laid down but were left to gather dust in the vaults. That is until now, so after over 20 years of anonymity you finally have before you David Hudson's forgotten "Royal Sound Sessions".

We have decided to release the album on the format that it was originally intended to have been released on at the time, good old fashioned vinyl. Enjoy!!
