Soul Romantix Vol. II


Soul Romantix Volume Two is the second in LocoBop’s series of southern soul music perfect for romantic moments, performed by some of the greatest interpreters of the art form called soul.
 

Rock & Roll Hall of Famer JERRY BUTLER (“The Ice Man”) contributes one of his classics to this set: “Make It Easy On Yourself.” LUTHER INGRAM’S (“If Loving You Is Wrong) I Don’t Want to be Right” has been an anthem for secret lovers; he adds another theme here with “Let’s Steal Away to the Hideaway”. DOBIE GRAY, remembered for “Drift Away,” regrets a past mistake “Right About Now.” SHIRLEY BROWN shot to fame with “Woman to Woman;” wiser now, she  wants to “Leave The Bridges Standing”. RUBY WILSON, rightly dubbed “The Queen of Beale Street,” proves herself worthy of the crown with “A Song For You”. THE MASQUERADERS deliver a sterling version of one of their hits, “It’s a Terrible Thing.” New Orleans native TARA DARNELL goes to church to pledge “I’ll Be Here For You” to the man she loves. R.B. HUDMON’S treatment of Homer Banks’s “It Makes Me Wanna Cry” is a reminder of what we lost when Hudmon died relatively young. New Orleans showman LES GETREX works his magic on the Louisiana standard “Elvina”. J. BLACKFOOT scored over 15 Top Tens with the Soul Children, and here he’s at his most romantic with “Sunshine Lady”. RANDY BROWN reminds us why he was so successful charting his solo path in the 1970s with this rendition of “If I Don’t Love you”.
