Things In Records That Make You Shiver

All About the SOUL Gilly

Jimmy Ricks' voice in just about every recording he has sang on, but I can't think of a better example than this. His take on the the line "Baby, you've got me beat up, down, inside out and across, ooh yeah!" - ahhh that illusive, but very real feeling!

I can't believe I am still hearing stuff recorded in 1967/8 for the first time in the last couple of weeks. It's very inspiring with my song writing. Indeed I just heared recently 'In the nick if time' by Toni Lamarr on Buddah Records. They just get better. In fact I just analysed the song with a view to it's structure, use of pre-hook and chorus key change. Also the drummer seems to be using ride rather than hi hat in places. It is on YouTube and about £30 from the record stores. Brill tune and shocked me when I heard it. Here is my analysis:

The horns are slightly different, but in essence I have the structure now....

 

Actually it sounds very Teen Turbans (I think) 'Need to be loved'. I wonder if that was a Van McCoy Production?

The instrumental break at around 1:20 on Sam Fletcher "I`d Think It Over"  Just sublime to my ears...

 

Great thread BTW - some tunes on here I`ve been introduced to  :)

goosebumps?.....shivers down the spine??......there is ONE supreme hands down WINNER.....LINDA JONES, unquestionably, and without any shred of a doubt, THIS woman HAD IT ALL.  not an octave on the chart she couldn't reach...coupled with THE genius that was GEORGE KERR, her contributions to soul music are nothing less than SUBLIMINAL!..we could talk for eternity about wonderfully dynamic orchestrations and the legendary and integral sax break that is the trademark of many historic northern soul records, but only ONE ARTIST can contrive a "vocal break", if such a thing exists...and that would lead all and sundry to conclude that i speak of "MY HEART NEEDS A BREAK", a song in itself that could easily have doubled for a blockbusting 007 soundtrack, when from out of nowhere, bursts forth, a mind blowingly sumptuous mini-aria that is breathtaking, yet not beyond the realm of a woman, mature beyond her years...she takes it in her stride with ease, pitched within the confines of kerr's heartwrenching lyrics.

 

a true heroine of the northern soul saga, who seccumbed to diabetes, LINDA was taken from us, aged just 28 years in 1973, an incalculable loss in terms of her mastery of a meaningful song, her catalogue has no flaws, such was her very real greatness...had she lived, what price a performance on a stage in this country??.

 

I wish to associate myself with this post - nail and head.

I think your comments are 100% spot on. Linda has always been my queen of soul and theirs no rival. But I think she passed at 27 in 1972 I have only mentioned this as you are obviously a big fan.Check it out I may be wrong (wouldent be the 1st Time) I always thought the great My Heart Needs A Break was a 70s track but now I wonder if it was late 60s   MIck

Kevin - that piano intro is unique isn't it! It works.

 

Jez - Van McCoy has a certain stamp on his tracks....especially singing as a girl on one of his productions I believe.

 

Don't forget the Soundcloud analysis I did on 'Nick', is not the original, just me laying down the groove to see how the structure worked. I decided to put the hand claps and tambourine on to give it a more organic feel.

I just love the wonky sax break on There's No Stopping Us Now, and think a very similar break in I Guess I'll Always Love You is breathtaking. 

 

I think the only word I can think of to describe them is Melancholy.

 

Also love Levi's voice breaking towards the end of Can't Help Myself.

 

Really good thread.

For me it has  to be  Alice Clark, the parts from where she says "Suddenly... watching you go.........  the whole build up through to the words you "Hit me hit me etc into the chorus" what a voice combined with a  brilliant musical arrangement and build up going on, now that gives me  a "Shiver",if thats what you call it ....then some more of the same besides.Classic all nighter soul at its most magnificent adrenaline rush shiver down and up your every bone in your body provoking  best .One of those many from back then(Among present day others I still do  on  hearing   the  first time )made you shiver and ask as soon as you heard it "Who sung that,whats it  called",one of those you continued to love and always will love one that never fails to give you that shiver"as they call it".By the way the intro gives me a shiver and for that matter every little bit of You hit me does just that raw emotion true all nighter style.
