Welcome To The Soul-Patrol Newsletter

So, just what the heck is HARDCORE SOUL???


Well there isn't really anything new about it....We have certainly discussed it before. It means exactly the same thing as other terms that we have used in the past like...

"Great Black Music from the Ancient To the Future"
"Black American Standard Music"


And others...

So there really is no difference, however I just wanted to codify things just a little bit and be a little bit more specific, so that I could in effect create a new category of music that by definition is in.

100 PERCENT ATTACK MODE & TOTALLY WITHOUT COMPROMISE

To paraphrase Mike Tyson: "it's almost like the artist is trying to punch the listener's NOSE BONE up into their BRAIN..."

It's in fact so good at sticking to the basic principles, that it doesn't even require a second listen, however it compels one to listen multiple times at one sitting...

For example, one night I was working on some stuff and I started listening to Alicia Keys - "Teenage Love Affair"...And when the song ended, I hit replay. Again and again, And again and again. After about the 10th listen, I said to myself....."this is sick and I need to stop"

So I decided that from time to time, in addition to the standard reviews, that I would give yall a list of songs that are "HARDCORE SOUL", songs that really conform to the highest level of quality that Black music has to offer as a part of my own personal quest to separate this kind of new music from that which is also very good, but simply isn't "HARDCORE SOUL."

Here 10 examples of "HARDCORE SOUL" that I like right now, right quick:

Alicia Keys - "Teenage Love Affair"
Linda Jones - "Linda's 2 Minute Slow Jam"
Lou Wilson & Todays People - "Heard It thru the Grapevine"
Plunky B. - "Synchrofunkinicity"
Leela James - "It's a Man's World"
Solange Knowles - "6 O'Clock Blues"
The Revelations Featuring Tre Williams - "Everybody Knows"
The Soul of John Black - "Betty Jean"
Nadir - "Life In the Fast Lane"
Marc Broussard - "Hard Knocks"

If you listen to any of these songs the FIRST TIME, they require absolutely no explanation as to why you want to hit the replay button. At the same time I am fully aware that there will be many people who won't like "HARDCORE SOUL." They would much rather be told by someone what they should like as opposed to actually listening for themselves...

I now realize that wasn't quick, but now yall will know what I mean in the future when I use the term..."HARDCORE SOUL"

(and it's no coincidence that these songs are all getting heavy airplay on Nu Soul @ RadioIO.com)

So on this edition of the Soul-Patrol Newsletter I cordially invite you to learn a whole lot about the artistry of MR LOU WILSON, by checking out our review further down this page of his new album called "MONEY TALKS" and to listen to MONEY TALKS in it's entirety via Soul-Patrol.Net Radio at the following link:

BIO: Lou Wilson


Read the restBorn in Senatobia MS. Later his family moved to Memphis TN. While being raised in Memphis Lou listened to and was influenced by many of the local greats such as Elmore James Howlin' Wolf, B B King, Johnny Ace and Little Junior Parker to name a few. He has performed in Canada in the Maximum Blues Festival.

As a performer Lou has the talent of being a soulful singer and songwriter. He had a long career going back to the fifties with a group he founded: Wade Flemons and the New Comers, who had a top R&B hit "Here I Stand" on Chicago's Vee-Jay Records. As a solo performer Lou was successful with "This Love is Getting Deeper" on Kent Records. "Got To Be Me" on Columbia Records and four releases on Detroit Crew Records titled: "On The Right Track, "True Blues", "Prime Time", and the brand new hottest release "Blue Groove". His music will keep your head bopping and your fingers popping, your feet moving and your body grooving to the soulful sounds of this dynamic recording artist, Lou Wilson.

MONEY TALK is Lou Wilson's latest CD. It consists of sounds of southern soul, blues and R&B.

--'Roots of My Heart' has a country flavor.
--'Miss-High and Mighty' is talking about what's going on in the world today.
--'I Heard It through The Grapevine' is a remix with horns.

Some of the songs are nice dance songs. This CD has a nice mix of music. Lou had a mix of great musicians that he worked with.

This is Lou's fifth CD.

Album Review: Lou Wilson and Today's People - Money Talk


Read the restIn this economic climate it is easy to recommend the newest release by Lou Wilson and Today's People "Money Talk". For an hour or so you will forget your money problems (well maybe). This is the most fun yes I said fun, I've had listening to a cd in sometime. These songs will take you back to a simpler time when people wrote from their hearts and the mantra might as well been "keep it simple stupid!" These songs are crisp and clean in arrangements , for example listen to the musicians on Money Talk, horns more crisp than corn flakes, takes you back to those funky horn sections of the late 60's and the 70's.

I do not hesitate when I say Lou Wilson is one of those talents like Al Green, Bobby Womack, B.Rush, BB King, and other great one of kind voices who with one listen will sear their sound into the recesses of you mind. His phrasing is truly a joy to hear on songs' like "Settle down", "Dog in the House", "Heard it through the Grapevine", and one of my favorites "Taking over my Baby's mind". Lou reinvents the pronunciation for the word Alien, and it brings a smile whenever he sings it. There is a velvet pebble in the throat of Lou that gives him a smooth but graveled unique and strangely comforting sound. That makes it another one of those sad examples of wonderful talent who has gone virtually unknown while artists of lesser ability get undo praise and hero worship for doing nothing of note.

The tone of this cd is straight old school and will take you were you really want to go and that is a good place. Forget the cares of the day for a few moments enjoys Lou Wilson as he sings "Roots of my Heart" and "If it ain't broke, don't try to fix". One is a Blues flavored ballad that may bring tears to your eyes like it did to mine, the other a mid tempo joint that would have made Willie Hutch and Johnnie Taylor both smile because it is their suit size also, and Lou wears the hell out of it. Look there are many more words and a few more songs. But the bottom line is this is that cd that will make you Find out who Lou Wilson is and where he has been and what he has done!
