KEITH BARROW – “If it’s love that you’re looking for” (1978)

Keith’s great falsetto is wonderfully utilized by superb production by Michael Stokes while this smooth song is co-written by Michael himself and Ronn Matlock!!! Taken from his 2d LP “Physical attraction” released on CBS Records in 1978.

GUYMON ENSLEY – “This comes with it” (2014)

Usually I don’t post new releases but this one is really an exception. Before going any further, many thanks to my precious friend SoulLakis from Volos who hooked me up with this unique gem.

By far the best Jazzy Soul release of the year! Trumpeter Guymon Ensley teams up with Odell Jones & Gisele “Gee” Caver on vocals creating a sublime soulful affair second to none. From the moment it starts, you know instantly that it’s gonna be the No.1 pick on your 2014 year-end Soul List. Awaiting your comments…..
