Willie West and the High Society Bros: Lesson of Love Pt. 1 (snippet)
From 7″ (Timmion, 2010)
Myron and E: Pot Club (snippet)
From 7″ (fortchoming on Timmion, 2010)
Got a lil care package from Helsinki the other day: new 7″s by both Willie West and Myron and E. I’ve written about both in the past and right now, NOLA soul slinger and the Bay Area’s dynamic duo seem to be holding it down for Timmion’s main releases. Always good to hear new stuff from them, especially with the fragile deep soul of West’s “Lesson of Love” and the rather comical content of Myron and E’s “Pot Club.”
The West single is currently avail; I’m assuming the new Myron and E is forthcoming for later in the fall.
(BTW: I was also going to share new Daptones-produced single feat. Syl Johnson but they’ve decided to keep the wraps on that for now. Hopefully, by the time Syl’s insane box-set comes out on Numero in a month or so, it’ll get unleashed).
Did not know Willie was still making his smooth voice heard to the world. Love his music, especially “I Sleep With the Blues.” Don’t know why I have such an affinity for sad songs but they just hit me deep. Thanks for the post.
