James Brown “Any Day Now”
from Polydor Burt Bacharach Songbook "Lippy Lip Bacharach" (Polydor unk 1998) —Alright, we're not going to mess around here. 1969 song written by Bob Hilliard & Burt Bacharach and featuring an amazing vocal by James Brown. This Japanese compilation says "Lippy Lip Bacharach." Why? I have no idea. I don't ask questions.
Moses & Joshua Dillard “My Elusive Dreams”
from Behind Closed Doors: Where Country Meets Soul (Kent 2012) N —Originally recorded by Curly Putnam in 1967 and done as a mournful country ballad. This 1967 soul version, however, is a completely different animal. Sounds more like a James & Bobby Purify or Sam & Dave rave-up.
Booker T. Averheart “Heart 'N Soul”
from Soul 7: Seven Funk and Soul Seven Inhes from the 60s and 70s (Now-Again 2003) —1969 funk & soul instrumental composed by Booker T. Averhart & recorded in Dallas, TX.
