JUNIOR PARKER: SWEET AS HONEY: “


Junior Parker: Lover to Friend
Your Love’s All Over Me
From Honey-Drippin’ Blues (Blue Rock/Mercury, 1969)

Bluesman Parker is already responsible for one of the funkiest blues tunes I know, his cover of the Beatles’ ‘Taxman.’ However, I had totally forgotten about this ‘69 album until my recent move and I was reacquainted with two of its outstanding cuts. What I like about both of these songs, especially ‘Your Love’s All Over Me,’ is how they lean more to the R&B side than being traditional blues tunes and both open with waiting-to-be-looped basslines (any producers out there looking to mess with either of these, holler and I’ll send you a higher quality version. This might be a tad too simple though; your call).

(Via soul sides.)
