Keb Darge & Paul Weller – Lost and Found: Real R’n’B and Soul

February 1, 2010

Loving this new collection of ’50s and ’60s soul compiled by Keb Darge and Paul Weller.

I’m not quite sure about the “lost” part — I doubt that it’s true to say that any of the tracks here were really ever totally lost, at least not to true fans (which would include of course Darge and Weller themselves).  But certainly they’re all at least somewhat obscure, and the two curators have done a great job of bringing them back to light and sequencing them nicely on the cd.

My personal favorites: Emmitt Long’s “Call Me,” Margie Joseph’s “One More Chance,” The Flirtations’ “Stronger Than Her Love,” and, especially, Tammi Terrell’s “All I Do Is Think About You.” That last one, composed by Stevie Wonder and originally recorded in 1966, features an incredibly beautiful, absolutely perfect vocal performance by Ms. Terrell and most definitely stands as an underappreciated Motown classic.

    Great comments which capture the best of this CD. Tammi Terrell is one of ny favourite singers so really pleased to see she was included. Personally, I liked Paul Weller’s selection better but still a CD I will listen to time after time, even if my tennage kids have no appreciation of superior music.
