4.0 out of 5 stars it all makes perfect sense, January 5, 2004
Frank A. Brenner "Fred Failure" (chicago, Illinois United States) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Country Got Soul V.1 (Audio CD)
It might sound a little out, if you try and sit down and think about it. Country guys laying down serious soul music. White guys, with pick-ups laying down gospel soul claps, and syncopated horn lines. But it is all in here. And it isnt cheesy or strange, if you are to really think about it. The South being such an incestuously strange place, with a racism that is both tempered and fueled by a racial, cultural commonality. Cheese gritts, ham hocks, sweet potato pie, and church on Sunday are all part of it. This music is strange, joyous, sometimes corny (The Post 73'cuts)but genuinely soulful documents of a non homogenized American musical landscape. It helps us all to remember that Muscle Shoals studio had a mess of white dudes laying it down with Aretha, and Otis. So have faith. In the vein of Bobby Womack, Dusty Springfield, Charlie Rich, Booker T, and even Lambchop on some soulful excursion. Beautifully Nasty.
