Jimmy Soul – “Best of Jimmy Soul, The” – [Rhino Records]
Jimmy Soul’s big hit was track 1. Here is some more old school soul from the early 1960’s with rockin’ tunes featuring yakety sax, backup singers, and falsetto. Funny lyrics and a Shakespeare quote in track 12 made me smile. Liner notes are mostly about the producer, Frank Guida, who learned to love calypso while stationed in the West Indies in WW2. Jimmy Soul was a stage name for James McCleese who was also a preacher and gospel singer.
