New Real Soul Artist - Brand New Album

Posted (edited)

It's rare I rave about, or get the chance to plug anything brand new these days, but (as I've not seen anything on here regarding this Lady - and I'd hate ya'll to miss out) I'm knocked out by the new MALACO album from Queen Emily.

Its light years ahead of most 'new' product, featuring as it does the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, with Clayton Ivey, Jimmy Johnson and James Robertson and some fabulous songs from the likes of Sam Dees & Frederick Knight.

Brought me right back to that day in 1974 when I unwrapped and placed on the turntable for the very first time that stone soul classic album 'Woman To Woman' from Shirley Brown.

Yep - it's that good, it evokes such precious memories.

Grown up lyrics, well sung with a tight band of REAL musicians... bloody hell, I've waited a long time for Black America to produce anything this good.

Such a refreshing change.

If you buy only one new album this year, make it this one!

It's the Real Deal.

So, if you haven't already.... Buy it Now!

Great call Sean. Like yourself there aren't many artist from recent years that do it for me. I tripped over her some months ago on the Tube and was knocked out by her.

There's plenty of her on there from when she was on America's Got Talent :lol:

I've told you before, I'll bend over and you pay the mortgage. :lol:

Good review on AZ UK

"Absolutely fantastic slab of Southern Soul in the best Millie Jackson, Shirley Brown, Betty Wright tradition. Basically this album contains everything I've been missing in modern day Black Music for so long; grown folks music made of flesh and blood for grown ups made of flesh and blood.The realness of it!

Album of the year."

Think its the most significant LP since Dorothy Moore's 'Misty Blue' in terms of its ability to break genuine Southern Soul into the mainstream!

We live in hope :yes:.

Yes, I'll be getting it soon. As for the other two CDs I think Sean wants you to buy two more, just in case you lose 'em :lol:

Yup, and dirt cheap to at £3.99 apiece (post free). In the case of those two cheap doesn't equate to crap.

Regular plays for me whilst driving or ironing :lol:

Better still, buy the TWO incredible Amazon Recommendations shown along with it for only £16.97!

Yep, the machine appears to be working like a dream! Both of these are consistent best-sellers for the series, week in week out. Last week's sales on both titles were the best since they came out in July! I think a whole new audience is discovering the delights of Southern Soul plus export figures are fantastic too - as an example you can actually find these two albums racked in the French chain Fnac throughout Xmas 'cos they love 'em over there as well.

How are the next ones coming along Sean? :yes:

Compliments of the season sir. :lol:

So good to hear, Ian.

You've made my day to hear that sales are going well on these.

What that really means to me is that more and more people are discovering the delights of Southern Soul - the real deal! :D

And 'Shinehead' and Arkwright (Dave) the 'essential' type comments are much appreciated.

When I was a kid, the two 'essential' albums were 'Motown Chartbuster Volume 3' and 'This Is Soul' from Stax / Atlantic.

When compiling 'Love & Jealousy' and 'I Get My Groove' that's kind of what I had in mind. 50 Great tracks that every Soul fan should own.

I realise the game has changed, its a different market and a different time, but with your 'Special Price' approach, I'm chuffed to nuts to think that these could be heading anywhere towards that direction.

Now we've got even more to go at (with the Brunswick and Malaco catalogues available to us biggrin.gif) I think the next bunch are going to be even closer to the mark.

Be assured, they are coming on very nicely, Ian.

Working with this breadth of a catalogue is an absolute pleasure.

And the best is yet to come!

Compliments of the season to you too sir. :yes:

Got to agree those two CD's are the bargains of the year - wonderful stuff and the epitome of 'Just soul'.

On your recommendation Sean i'll pick up the Queen Emily - I rarely buy newly recorded Soul - but if there is is even a hint of programmed backing I'll demand a refund personally from you in March ph34r.gif The Ronnie Lovejoy tracks on the the two CD's stick out like a sore thumb, sorry smile.gif

Harrison Calloway, Mike Haynes, Steve Patrick, Harvey Thompson, Kent Bruce, Clayton Ivey, Reggie Young, James Robertson, Tommy Couch Jr, David Hood, Jimmy Johnson, Wolf Stephenson, George Jackson, Frederick Night, on the Players and Producers side...

...with classic songs by Sam Dees, Frederick Knight, Willie Clayton, Frank Johnson, Paul Kelly, Clayton Ivey, Terry Woodford, George Jackson...

...it's proper Mike.

But if you're not completely satisfied I'll gladly take it off your hands.

The Mrs wants her own copy :yes:.
