I Don’t Mind

5 Aug



A beautiful compilation of deep soul, psych, fuzzy folk, and of course, nut-busting funk. There are lots of rarities here.

The point of inspiration for the whole piece was Lee Moses, a forgotten soul artist who changed my life last winter. I’ve included three of his songs. Situating Moses against other artists on this mix reveals some interesting influences.

None of this would have been possible without Pete Beaver’s supremely good taste. (I owe my title to James Brown.)

Track List:
1. Johnson, Hawkins, Tatum & Durr – You Can’t Blame Me
2. Marva Josie – Later For You, Baby
3. Johnny Cool – That’s You
4. Them – It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue
5. The Now Generation – People Make the World Go Round
6. Paul Burton – So Very Hard to Make It (Without You)
7. Gloria Taylor – How Can You Say It
8. Bonnie Dobson – Winter’s Going
9. Stone Coal White – Peoples
10. Lee Moses – Hey Joe
11. Steve Parks – Still Thinking of You
12. Lydia Pense – I’ll Forgive You Then Forget You
13. Gal Costa – Baby
14. Eunice Collins – At the Motel
15. Lee Moses – I Can’t Take No Chances
16. Johnny Cool – Love Bounce
17. The Crow – Your Autumn of Tomorrow
18. James Brown – There Was a Time
19. The Exciters – Movin’ Too Slow
20. Willie Tee – First Taste of Hurt
21. Billy Wade & The Third Degrees – Tear it Up (pt. 1)
22. Lee Moses – Bad Girl (pt. 2)
23. Betty Lavette – What Condition My Condition is In
24. Mary Wells – The Doctor
25. Jimmy Ricks – Oh What A Feeling
