***NEW*** Oliver James - You Left Me Alone b/w A Fool For You - GED Soul Records
Meet Oliver James! From Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee, the multi-instrumentalist James had been crafting mid 60s era soul gems with a Motor City vibe for years and had perfected his skills by traveling with his family band all through the USA.
After hearing a few tracks, GED began working with Oliver James to share these incredible blue-eyed soul tracks with the rest of the world. Indeed, Oliver James is time machine player, fully embodying that moment in time when everything was good and simple and the music reflects it! “You Left Me Alone” on the A-Side is a mid tempo jaunt that will remind listeners of the very best elements of any Funk Brothers production while remaining solidly unique. Young Oliver James’ heartfelt belting on this track will buckle knees with ease!”
The B-Side is home of the slow simmering “A Fool for You”, a crooned ballad of fleeting love that is all too common in popular music. Yet Oliver James’ rendition of this tried songwriting device stays fresh with it’s earnest portrayal and spot on production value that is on par with some of the greats of yesteryear. If you are a fan of Northern Soul, look no further… Oliver James delivers!
Another quality release from G.E.D. Soul Records.
