DEEP DIP INTO MISSISSIPPI SOUL VOL 2 GREENVILLE

Greenville

As far as we are aware, this is the only ever retrospective of Mississippi music with the Greenville connection.  As the notes state, this compilation  is probably the first time these songs have been available since the records were pressed over 50 years ago.  No big names here – no soul or blues superstars and no national hits either, but you will find a heartbeat of little label music – the backbone of Afro-American culture as it was heard in the juke joints and bars of the Mississippi Delta in the 60s.

JAMES & BOBBY PURIFY

Purify Cover

JAMES AND BOBBY PURIFY shot to fame in late 1966 with their debut single for Bell Records, ‘I’m Your Puppet’,which quickly became established as a soul classic. Written by Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham, the song was a smash hit, reaching the US Top 10 Pop and R&B Billboard charts, and was nominated for a Grammy. Thereafter, the pair recorded two albums and several singles for Bell before eventually leaving Bell in 1968. Named after their biggest hit, I’M YOUR PUPPET includes all of James And Bobby Purify’s recordings during that dizzy two year period, including both LPs, all non-album tracks and a clutch of recordings which only surfaced in 2002. Many tracks are currently unavailable on CD.
