Editorial Reviews

Mel & Tim are best known for their two million-selling singles Backfield In Motion and Starting All Over Again but it is their third album, simply called Mel & Tim that sets collectors' hearts ablaze. Recorded at Muscle Shoals Sound studio and featuring their classic rhythm section of Hawkins, Hood, Beckett and Johnson, it is a simple Southern soul classic.

The LP is now known for the Gilles Peterson Vibrazone classic, Keep The Faith, written by Mark James (the writer of Suspicious Minds and Always On My Mind). The rest of the album is a showcase for the songwriting talent of Prince Phillip Mitchell.

By George O'Leary TOP 500 REVIEWER on June 15, 2013
Format: Audio CD
Holly Springs, Mississippi cousins Melvin McArthur Hardin and Hubert Timothy McPherson took their Soul/Funk duet act of Mel & Tim to Chicago in the late 1960s, together with a healthy supply of songs they had written, to record for the small Bamboo Records label owned by Hardin's mother Yolanda, who had a distribution arrangement with the much larger Scepter Records, home of Dionne Warwick among others. Their first release, and one they had written some time earlier called I've Got Puredee went nowhere on Bamboo 106 b/w an instrumental version of the same song, but the follow-up Backfield In Motion turned out to be their best hit of six, reaching # 3 R&B and # 10 Billboard Pop Hot 100 in October/November 1969 on Bamboo 107 b/w Do Right Baby, both of which they also composed. That was produced by Gene Chandler (of Duke Of Earl fame) as was the follow-up Good Guys Only Win In The Movies, which didn't fare nearly as well, peaking at # 17 R&B/# 45 Hot 100 in in February 1970 b/w I Found That Was Wrong on Bamboo 109.

None of the next three 1970 releases could make any national charts, however (Feeling Bad/I've Got Puredee on Bamboo 112, Mail Call Time/Forget It, I've Got It on Bamboo 114, and We've Got The Groove To Move You/Never On Time on Bamboo 116), and after Bamboo folded its tent that year the duo moved on to Stax Records, first launched in Memphis in 1957 by Jim Stewart and Estelle Axton (ST + AX hence Stax). Appropriately, their first release there was Starting All Over Again (written by Phillip Mitchell) and it became their second best hit by finishing at # 4 R&B and # 19 Hot 100 in July/August 1972 b/w It Hurts To Want It So Bad on Stax 0127.
