Soul Station Feature: John Hammond

Shake For Me

I discovered the Southern Friedalbum in 1970, sometime after it was released. Most of it hit me right off. I was also drawn to it because Duane Allman is on four of the disc's tracks. I was already familiar with Hammond's Vanguard label albums, since the public library had them. I liked them, but really felt this album was in a different class: it had horns and a much different drum sound. Probably because it was recorded in Alabama. The lead track on side one was also put out on a 45 at the end of 1969, before the album was issued, and though it didn't light up the charts, it is easy to tell why it was chosen: Allman adds a lot when his slide enters during the second verse.

Soul Station Feature: Chuck Jackson

Are You Lonely For Me Baby?

Chuck Jackson has one great voice. It has been many years since I last saw him, but in the late 1990s he STILL had that marvelous baritone voice. His career began in the 1950s as a member of the Del Vikings. His own records began to chart by 1960 and he was consistently there for the decade. He is perhaps best known for I Don't Want To Cry and Any Day Now. My early favorite is I Wake Up Crying. As the decade passed, some of his releases became harder soul and less pop, including his final Wand 45 done with Papa John Schroeder, before he signed with Motown. His strongest hit there was a cover of the 1966 Freddie Scott smash, Are You Lonely For Me Baby; produced by Clay McMurray before his greater success with Gladys Knight, it id dynamite. I do truly dig the Scott record, but this is very great as well, and hit #27 on the national r&b chart in 1969.
