Welcome To The Soul-Patrol Newsletter

More....More.....LATIMORE

That's what the great DJ's used to always say from back in the day whenever they introduced a record by LATIMORE. So therefore it is with great pride and a sense of history that Soul-Patrol.com wants to introduce you to a new record by Latimore here in 2009.

This issue contains not only a review of the new album by Latimore called "All About the Rhythm and the Blues", but aalso a detailed review of a Latimore release from earlier this decade that I know many of yall "slept on" called "Early Years." We also have a special internet radio broadcast from Mr. Earl Gregory, which is focused on "All About the Rhythm and the Blues." The broadcast is introduced by a young artist that we have featured here on Soul-Patrol in the past named Tre Williams. The two of them performed on stage together over the summer here in New Jersey in what was described to me as a "passing of the torch."

However, when you listen to the album at the following link:
http://www.soul-patrol.net/latimore.ram I'm sure that you will agree (Latimore ain't going anyplace....)

Thanks in advance...Check this stuff out and let us know what cha think?

PRESS RELEASE: Latimore - All About the Rhythm and the Blues

PRESS RELEASE: Latimore - All About the Rhythm and the Blues“Latimore’s new album titled All About the Rhythm and the Blues is his best work in years,” says the legendary Henry Stone, who was involved from the first note recorded on this album. According to Stone, “Latimore has created a masterpiece.”

Latimore’s always smooth, rich, full vocals and masterful keyboard performances, along with Stone’s unique approach of guidance and top recording industry pros, like George “Chocolate” Perry on bass, percussion, state of the art audio recording and mix engineering skills, as well as true grassroots Blues guitar man, Warren ”Roach” Thompson, perform the soulful Blues grooves with a style and drive that is unstoppable.

The melodies, the riffs and the rhythms, will reach deep down into that place that makes you close your eyes and bob your head. It is that, “Oooh! It sounds so good, I can feel it in my chest,” that puts that easy blues look on your face. You know the one! When you don’t care who is watching or what you’re doing, it just grabs ahold of you and makes you groove!

Please exercise caution when operating a car or heavy equipment. You want to keep your eyes open. And keep a look out for this amazing new album from Latimore, set for release on the LatStone Label, September 18, 2009. Get the CD direct from the www.HenryStoneMusic.com web store. And digital download the album from your favorite online provider. One listen and you will know that it is All About the Rhythm and the Blues.

Album Review: Latimore - All About the Rhythm and the Blues

Album Review: Latimore - All About the Rhythm and the Blues“Maybe my age is showing. Maybe my bias to traditional classic Soul. Maybe it's my affinity to time honored performers who still have something to say musically, say it and without compromise with whom they are. Then again, "maybe" this is just a good album.

If you still have an appreciation for Classic Soul. If you still have an appreciation for "Da Blues", then this album should be in your library. The album is called "All About the Rhythm and the Blues" by the legend of "Southern Soul", LATIMORE. He's still got it, he's still the "High Priest" of Southern Soul.

Track List

--CITY LIFE
--DROWN IN MY OWN TEARS
--AROUND THE WORLD ( I really like this one. I think most cats will relate.)
--EVERYDAY IS A BEAUTIFUL DAY
--OBAMA AND THE FAT MAN
--DON'T GIVE UP ON OUR LOVE
--EVERYDAY I HAVE THE BLUES (His rendition of the Blues Classic)
--PASS THE PIANO BLUES (..a continuation of "Everyday..." with a piano solo)
--SINGING AND PLAYING THE BLUES
--MR. RIGHT NOW (This one tickles the hell out of me. Talking 'bout "cutting to the chase.)
--AROUND THE WORLD (Club mix bonus track)
Now I know that there will be those who will offer the "dated" argument. Well they are welcome to it. This is "Latimo' "! No more and no less what we, who have listened to him over the decades, can or should expect. Pure Southern Soul/Blues with the stories that are from the "down home" experience and perspective. Believe it or not, we really haven't gotten too hip to relate no matter how "citified" we have become. I think we still need these kinds of projects to remind us of just how simple things really are in the end of the day.

I guess it's pretty plan, Earl Gregory gets "the Grown Folks" albums. This is a "Grown Folks" album for sho'. This "is" LATIMORE as we have come to appreciate him for decades, and this album exemplifies his continuing reign as the "High Priest" of Southern Soul and Blues.

CD Review: Benny Latimore - "The Early Years" (Southern Soul)

Benny LatimoreBenny Latimore is an icon in the Black community in the United States and while he may not be a household name in the "mainstream" his name is such in the Black community that he is counted among the very few artists for whom you don't even have to say his entire name and people know who you are talking about. He's one of the great Ballad singers in the history of Black music and on this CD rescued from deep in the vaults of Henry Stone Music, we get to hear what the "early years" of this icon sounded like.

The "black music experts" at places like Rolling Stone, VH-1, Vibe, Clear Channel and other places may not know much about Latimore, but if you go deep into the heart of the community ("tha hood") they know all about Latimore.

Imagine this scene from the 1980's for just a moment…

Bennie Latimore slowImagine yourself (a kid who thinks he knows all there is to know about music/life) in a neighborhood bar at 3pm (that's right I said THREE P.M IN THE AFTERNOON) in say Bed-Sty/Brooklyn, Hill District/Pittsburgh, 5th Ward/Houston, etc. You all know the types of places I'm talkin about (and shame on you if ya try to tell me that you have never been in one of this type of places cuz we all KNOW that you would be lying….lol)

This is the type of song that might be playing on the jukebox when you first walk in and are treated to the sight of the 60ish 350 lb owner doing a type of super NASTY FAST WILD ASS GRIND along with his equally "girthful" wife/girlfriend. The way that the two of them are dancing is about as close to actually having sex while still remaining fully clothed……lol

After the song ends the owner (who you hadn't realized was watching you) comes over to you and you sit and have a beer with him since the bar only has about 10-15 people in there, and he then proceeds to tell you the history of Black music from his perspective (which is quite a bit different from the history of the music as described by "rock critics"…..lol) you leave the bar having consumed 3 free beers that he wouldn't let you pay for, just having made a new friend for life.

Bennie LatimoreIt is in these types of places, far removed from the line of sight of the folks who make programming decisions at radio & tv stations, editorial decisions at magazines or make design decisions at internet companies that you will find the music of Benny Latimore loudly playing on the jukebox and see people both dancing and crying in their beer. Fast forward to the year 2006 and guess what? You will still find the music of Latimore playing at same type of inner city bars/clubs in cities large and small across the United States that I guarantee you are never reviewed by the editors of the local tourist guide.

Anyhow, on the new release on Latimore called "Benny Latimore - The Early Years", Henry Stone gives us peek at what Latimore sounded like at the beginning of his career and there are a few surprises. "The Power and the Glory" is a duet with what sounds like a small gospel choir that will make you cry. Another example the cover version of Brook Benton's "It's Just A Matter of Time" is excellent and makes one think that perhaps Latimore can beat Brook Benton at his own game? However I quickly forgot about going into analytical when I got to track number 11. "I'll Be Good To You" (co-writen by Clarence "Blowfly" Reid) comes on and we are treated to one of the great Soul records of all time. That's followed by "I Pity The Fool" a great soul shouter where Latimore takes us to church (by way of a few "back ally's"….lol). "Rain from the Sky" is a great slow jam that would be perfect at a "bluelight basement" party in your house sometime soon.
