Soul Track Mind CD Release

Description: Recently featured on the cover of Texas Music magazine, Soul Track Mind has made a name for themselves by blending ’60s and ’70s era soul and R&B with flares of jazz, blues, funk and dance rhythms and a sound deeply rooted in retro convictions that still manages to feel fresh and modern. Over the last few years, whirlwind front man Donovan Keith and the dapper disciples of Soul Track Mind have become synonymous with raucously entertaining shows. Since releasing their debut album, Ghost of Soul, Soul Track Mind has become a force to reckon with in the modern soul genre.

"A cultural exclamation point about American music... They come out of a gritty melting pot that includes seasonings from Booker T and the MGs, Otis Redding, Billy Preston, the later works of Ray Charles, and more contemporary influences like the Black Keys and John Legend." - Jim Moore, Huffington Post

"Sidestepping or in some cases abandoning the most dominant music of the last 20 years, hip-hop, in favor of basic, traditional soul and creating the equivalent of a farm-to-turntable groove. What was even more notable was that these artists - Mayer Hawthorne, Eli (Paperboy) Reed, Kings Go Forth, Aloe Blacc, Jamie Lidell, Fitz and the Tantrums, Soul Track Mind, among others - were claiming this music as their own and their own generation’s." - Rob Hoerburger, The New York Times Magazine

"Pristine production, intricate instrumentation and high-speed horn solos, all the while showcasing frontman Donovan Keith's impressive vocal range." - Texas Music Magazine

Dirty Word

Ivan and Ian Neville, Tony Hall, Nick Daniels III, and Nikki Glaspie...

"The band's groove is a unique monster. It's not the minimalist funk of the Meters, though the band can lock in like that quartet. It's not the relentless funk of James Brown, but it has that rhythmic drive. It's not the psychedelic, over-the-top circus of Parliament-Funkadelic, but it often has that political slant. And it's not the party funk of the Ohio Players, but it shares the high vocals that take the pressure off the bottom. Dumpstaphunk is its own school of funk."

"If you're under 35, you may think you have heard funk, but you haven't. You missed the original Meters, James Brown when he wasn't a parody, Parliament-Funkadelic when the acid was great, Sly and the Family Stone before the cocaine, and Booker T. and the M.G.s before the demise of Stax. Dumpstaphunk is as good as all that, and it's in its prime now. So go buy an extra pair of clean underwear, head over to the Dumpstaphunk and dive in."

Souful Sunday Bringing you SAM & DAVE Voice of Memphis Music & Cotton Row Music & Records
Sam Moore and Dave Prater , are indeed Soulful Sunday ..SO please please please, "Hold On I'm Comin", Stax had so many great artist here is just a touch of SAM & DAVE.. not only did they help drive the MEMPHIS SOUND and STAX they brought that Southern Soul all over America till the popularity made them international stars )O( ENJOY this several song upload of STAX sounds and listen understand what was going on in the political arena and how SOUL MUSIC helped advance the movement.. Voice of Memphis Music...Cotton Row Music & Records.. Skip advertisement in beginning of each cut SORRY )O( both experienced gospel music singers, having performed individually with groups the Sensational Hummingbirds and The Melionaires. They met in The King of Hearts Club in Miami in 1961, where they were discovered by regional producer Henry Stone, who signed them to Roulette Records. After modest success at Roulette,they were signed by Jerry Wexler to Atlantic Records in 1964, then being 'loaned' out to Stax Records to produce, record and release their records.

The duo's November 1965 single, "You Don't Know Like I Know," started a series of ten straight top twenty Billboard R&B hits that included "Hold On! I'm Comin'" (1966), "You Got Me Hummin' (1966), "When Something Is Wrong with My Baby" (1967), "Soul Man" (1967), and "I Thank You" (1968). Most of their hits were penned by Isaac Hayes and Dave Porter. In most recordings, they were also backed by Hayes on piano with Booker T and the MGs and The Memphis Horns. The ending of their association with the Stax record label and their frequently volatile relationship contributed to their first break-up in 1970.

Sam & Dave performed throughout most of the 1970s through 1981, and enjoyed a brief resurgence in popularity due to The Blues Brothers's 1979 recording of "Soul Man". Their last performance together was on December 31, 1981, at the Old Waldorf in San Francisco. On 9 April 1988, Prater died in a car crash in Sycamore, Georgia.

Review: Mostly Jazz, Funk & Soul Festival, Day One

So good is Moseley Park as a setting for music festivals I sometimes think it should be signed over each summer for a series of festivals on a slightly smaller scale than those that take place in London’s Hyde Park. That said, I suspect the neighbours whose large houses border this private park in the heart of Moseley might have something to say about that. As it is the park sees two such festivals each year in the shape of the Moseley Folk Festival and its more recently arrived sibling Mostly Jazz Funk & Soul. Like the folk festival Mostly Jazz offers an eclectic mix of genres and styles and is designed for music lovers with varied tastes rather than the purists. Past headliners have included Booker T and the MGs and Nile Rodgers and Chic and this year’s opening night saw the turn of the Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Before they took to the stage the audience enjoyed hearing a host of others in the glorious summer sun. The second stage featured a rare appearance by local ‘supergroup’ Peaky Blinders. The core of the band features famed UB40 saxophonist Brian Travers, Pop Will Eat Itself bassist Richard March and Broadcast’s [...]

Robert Cray finds new soul with recent CD, Mavis Staples on tour

Guitarist and singer Robert Cray is known primarily as a blues musician, but this year, he and his band made a Memphis soul album. “We must have all eaten the same cereal or something, because we came in with all this soul music,” says Cray, who will perform some of the songs from “In My Soul” on Saturday at the Power Center in Ann Arbor. Cray will co-headline with Mavis Staples as part of the city’s Summer Festival Mainstage series. The festival, a mix of musical and comedy performances, activities, exhibits and screenings, wraps up July 6. “In My Soul” includes original compositions along with covers of classic cuts by Otis Redding, Bobby “Blue” Bland and Isaac Hayes. The record also incorporates a sly homage to Booker T. and the MGs titled “Hip Tight Onions,” a mashup of classic MGs titles “Hip Hug-Her,” “Time Is Tight” and “Green Onions.” The legendary sound of ’60s and ’70s soul giant Stax Records, home to Redding and Booker T., is a major influence on the new material, Cray says. “It’s Stax — that whole feel of the music that came out of Stax recording studios, and also the Hi Records sound that came [...]

16th June 1967 ..."Montery Pop Festival"

The first of the major rock festivals, Monterey Pop, is held in California, featuring established acts such as The Mamas and The Papas, Eric Burdon and the Animals, The Association, Booker T. and the MGs, The Who, and the Byrds, and also making superstars of several relatively new acts such as Otis Redding, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Simon and Garfunkel, Canned Heat, The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and The Steve Miller Band. 50,000 attendees paid between $3.50 and $6.50 to see more than two dozen acts, all of whom agreed to play for free so all proceeds could go to charity. The event kicked off the famous "Summer of Love," in which thousands of college-age rock fans visited San Francisco, and also inspired John Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas to write "San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers In Your Hair)," later a hit for Scott McKenzie. Filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker's acclaimed 1969 documentary Monterey Pop was filmed during the festival.

Filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker's acclaimed 1969 documentary Monterey Pop was filmed during the festival.
