REISSUED ON VINYL!!! “This album, which was repackaged and retitled Soul Serenade a year after its original release, catches WILLIE MITCHELL in superb form, not only as an arranger but as a leader fronting a first-rate ensemble. Apart from a somewhat predictable chorus on ‘Soulfinger,’ everything here has some subtlety in its presentation—details in the arrangements that surprise on repeated listening, and a crispness in the recording (this is some of the best-sounding stereo soul music of its period) that makes the repeated listening fun. The material ranges from new Mitchell-authored instrumentals to covers of standards such as ‘Slippin’ and Slidin’’ and ‘Sunny’ (which could’ve been considered for a double-A-sided single, and the latter might’ve just placed Mitchell onto the easy listening charts without compromising his sound; it’s that good). The playing by guitarist TEENIE HODGES is worth the price of admission and gets put in the spotlight surprisingly often, considering the abundance of first-rate reed and horn talent on hand”—Bruce Eder, All Music Guide Ooh Baby, You Turn Me On Artist: Willie Mitchell Format: LP Release Date: 4/14/2017 LABEL: Fat Possum Records UPC: 767981117812 Genre: Funk / Soul Style: Rhythm & Blues, Soul Tracklist A1 Ooh Baby, You Turn Me On 2:00 A2 Soul Finger 2:15 A3 Cleo’s Mood 2:21 A4 Slippin’ & Sliddin’ 1:56 A5 Soul Serenade 2:15 A6 Willie’s Mood 2:17 B1 Sunny 2:32 B2 Pearl Time 2:27 B3 Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag 2:12 B4 Respect 2:05 B5 Have You Ever Had The Blues 2:10 B6 Toddlin’ 2:04 GENRE: Soul/R & B
