Southern Soul Sunday 13
At this time of the year it is not always easy to remember what day of the week it is.
On the basis that this may be Sunday here is this week's installment of Southern Soul Sunday.
This week's featured artist is Doris Duke born in Sandersville, Georgia in 1945 as Doris Curry.
She has also recorded under two of her married names as Doris Willingham (before Duke) and Doris Logan (after).
These two songs are from her seminal 1969 album I'm a Loser which can be obtained from Kent Records on a two for one with 1971's A Legend in Her Own Time.
Both albums are produced by Jerry Williams Jr aka Swamp Dogg with him and Gary US Bonds providing the music and lyrics to these two fine fine tracks.
Hardly surprising then that I'm a Loser was the favourite album of Dave Godin - he of Deep Soul Treasures Vols 1-4 Taken From the Vaults ... fame
Not to be confused with the tobacco heiress and philanthropist of the same name who at one stage performed with a gospel choir.
