Moses & Joshua Dillard “My Elusive Dreams”
from Behind Closed Doors: Where Country Meets Soul (Kent 2012) —1967 country-soul version of a song written by Claude Putnam and Billy Sherrill and originally recorded by Curly Putnam as a country ballad. Let's just say this version is no ballad. Fans of Sam & Dave and James & Bobby Purify will love this.
Elayna Boynton & Anthony Hamilton “Freedom”
from Django Unchained (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) (Republic 2012) —Written by Elayna Boynton, Anthony Hamilton, and Kelvin Wotten and recorded for the soundtrack for the 2012 Quentin Tarantino film.
Supreme Jubilees “It'll All Be Over”
from Good God! Apocryphal Hymns (The Numero Group 2013) N —Originally recorded in 1980 in Visalia, CA for S & K Records. Chances are you haven't heard this gospel soul song since the the original pressing was only 500 copies. On this new 2-LP collection of rare soul gospel tracks.
Wilson Pickett “Danger Zone”
from Funky Midnight Mover: The Atlantic Studio Recordings (1962-1978) (Rhino 2009) —Written by Wilson Pickett and Steve Cropper and recorded at Stax in 1965. This goes out to Joy who pledged last week and wanted to hear something by The Commitments. This is about as close as I can get.
James Brown “Any Day Now”
from Polydor Burt Bacharach Songbook "Lippy Lip Bacharach" (Polydor 1998) —1969 song written by Bob Hilliard and Burt Bacharach
The Pastel Six “Bandido”
