Outta Sight in association with Real Side Records, presents Soul On The Real Side #5…
20 more soulful sides from Real Side Records, the rare soul coalition of Francis T and Joe Boy.
New-to-CD tracks come courtesy of Jesus Alvarez (one half of Shirley & Co.) with his 1981 crossover boogie “Please Stay Don’t Go” (trk. 3) – Alvarez also cut the modern soul rarity “Woman” under the pseudonym The Nicky Newarkers.
The J.A.L.N. Band finally make it to CD after 40 years with “Let’s Do It Now” (trk. 6), a fine modern soul offering penned and performed by former band member, and Real Side artist, Roy G Hemmings.
“Whisper (In Your Ear) (trk. 2) was written and recorded by Reggie Griffin and is taken from his 1982 album Mr Everything. Griffin was an original member of Manchild along with Babyface before he joined Sylvia and Joe Robinson’s Sugarhill empire as a studio musician and producer. He also performs on “Aah Dance” (trk. 9) by Fine Quality aka Earl Les Dion Brinkley and his cuz (cousin) Cathy Peterson.
R Kelly also makes a welcome return to Real Side with “Backyard Party” (trk. 16) taken from his 2015 album The Buffet. The party atmosphere continues with UK DJ Ben Westbeech on his 2011 modern soul anthem “Something For The Weekend” (trk. 17) and Lisa Stansfield keeps the British end up with her superb cover of Gloria Scott’s “(A Case Of) Too Much Love Making”.
Finally we tip our hat to the soulful side of reggae with the sought after “Baby Don’t Wake Me” produced by Jackie Edwards in 1972 for Del Davis and our sublime finale “Give Him Up” by First Generation.
PEACE, LOVE, SOUL
