"Jealous Wo-Man, Yes I Am"

LGB (New Album Alert!)



December 2, 2017:

NEW ALBUM ALERT!

Sample/Buy LGB's new OUR LOVE SLIPPED AWAY CD at CD Baby.

OUR LOVE SLIPPED AWAY SoundTrack:



1. Our Love Slipped Away (feat. Johnny Rawls)

2. You Driving Me Crazy

3. Tore up from the Floor Up

4. A Woman Needs

5. We Were Never Meant to Be (2010 Remix)

6. I'm Evil Tonight

7. She Ended Loving Him Today

8. I'm Pulling the Plug (feat. Tricia Barnwell)

9. Piano Musical Melodies

Daddy B. Nice notes: LGB is the female Luther Lackey, a musical genius way out in some constellation all her own. Her most well-produced album yet, OUR LOVE SLIPPED AWAY also features some of LGB's strongest vocals, many country-inflected and further lending to her idiosyncratic style.

On a more personal note, I was saddened to see LGB has eliminated the few YouTube videos of her music that existed on the popular music channel. Scroll down to "Tidbits" to see some of the videos taken down. I also featured a link to the YouTube video of the infectious "Jealous Wo-man, Yes I Am" at the top of her Guide (this page). It too is removed. To limit one's YouTube presence (and free distribution of music) is an artist's prerogative, but to have no YouTube presence whatsoever in this day and age is a huge impediment to a successful career. YouTube is today's universal "radio".

LGB Looks Back "In Peace" on the Marvin Sease Grave Marker Episode

Hello Daddy B. Nice:

It's been a while since we've talked & I hope all is well with you. This morning I sent you my latest new single rendition, covering "Tore Up From The Floor Up" for your listening pleasure. Of course, if you didn't get it, please let me know and I will gladly resent it to you. As always, I thank you so very much for all you do for the music & the recording artists, too!!!

Of course, as I was going thru some old emails, I came across the Marvin Sease's grave marker episode, which turned out okay, in the end. Also just hearing from you brought about a sense of peace in my heart about the entire effort.

But, I do want you to know on Father's Day, June 18. 2017...I received a FaceBook text from Marvin Sease's youngest son, Matthew Sease. Below I have provided the actual comments that took place on that Sunday afternoon. I also called Matthew Sease to ensure the Sease family members got to Marvin Sease's grave.

The bottom line here is...I know in my heart that we did the right thing back in 2015 and in 2017 some of Marvin Sease family members acknowledged that they, too, love Marvin Sease grave marker!!!

Linda Gray Barnwell

Daddy B. Nice notes:

Years ago, LGB discovered and was disturbed by the fact that the legendary southern soul singer, Marvin Sease--born in South Carolina near her hometown of Barnwell--was buried in an unmarked grave. She undertook a fund-raising effort and purchased the grave marker, but decided not to go ahead with the scheduled dedication due to the opposition of the Marvin Sease family at that time. That the years have soothed wounds all around is a surprising turn of events and the happiest of news for everyone who loved and respected Marvin.

Daddy B. Nice's Profile of LGB:




LGB is no musical prodigy. Endowed with limited range and scant power, she has nevertheless achieved the clarity of self and inner peace to embrace what she acknowledges as her "raspy soul voice."

Armed with nothing but her self-assurance and dogged determination, the product of Allendale, South Carolina has gradually fashioned a musical technique and a recording personality custom-tailored to her unique strength: an intrepid, Alice-in-Wonderland-like freshness. In LGB's world anything seems possible musically, and even probable.

Thus you have LGB's 2010 debut, the rather cryptic and pseudo-intellectual "Reality Slowly Walks Us Down." What to make of it other than enjoy the subtle blend of melody and harmonies?

And although "Reality's" smoke-and-mirrors didn't seem likely to be repeated, LGB followed it up in 2011 with the even farther-out-of-left-field "Jealous Wo-Man, Yes I Am," which soon became her signature single.

This wasn't your traditional Southern Soul (what is these days?), unless you're fortunate enough to remember the path-less-taken southern soul of Frank Mendenhall and some of that legendary singer's exotic, off-the-wall mini-masterpieces.

Three years after its initial release, "Jealous Wo-Man" at last finds a home in LGB's second full-length CD I Am Who I Am.

The collection boasts two new songs that have already charted on Daddy B. Nice's Top Ten "Breaking" Southern Soul Singles Chart (for January & February 2014), "You Don't Miss Your Water" (a tribute to William Bell) co-sung with Bishopville, South Carolina's Drink Small (and done twice), and "Country Woman," the most fully-accomplished new song and likely new single, performed in both southern soul and zydeco versions.

"Jody's Baby Girl" builds off an old Sam & Dave guitar riff ("I'm A Soul Man") but in typical LGB fashion avoids the crescendos and climaxes of the classic for a more subtle groove.

The two other most affecting--if peculiar--selections are the old standard "The Yellow Rose Of Texas" and an intriguing grafting of gospel and back-country folk called "Like A Tree In Water" ("I Will Not Be Removed").

About LGB (New Album Alert!)

LGB lives in Warner Robins, Georgia, but she was born and raised in Allendale, SC.

In 2005, Roy C. began producing LGB's daughter, Tricia Barnwell. LGB's first professional break came in November 2007, when she co-wrote two songs and performed "I'm Pulling the Plug" with daughter Tricia on her first CD, Country All Over Me.

Meanwhile, David Brinston used LGB as a back-up singer, citing her "raspy soul voice," and when Tricia Barnwell decided on a different career path, giving up music, LGB had songs she'd written for Tricia that were unused.

So in 2010, LGB teamed up with Mark Boston (aka "Rockette Morton," who once played bass guitar with "Captain Beefheart), guitarist Gene Avey and Les "Bo" Kitchings--all members of the Southern Meltdown Band from Aiken, South Carolina--and Frank Sandy, North Augusta, South Carolina on saxophone, harmonica and trumpet, to record her debut solo CD, Reality Slowly Walks Us Down. .

Tricia Barnwell sang background on the album, as did Margaret Daniel, Janice Porter and Ruby Moncrieft.

Avey sang two duets with LGB, the the title track "Reality Slowly Walks Us Down" and "Again, I've Fallen In Love With You."

The late Johnny "Doc" Wood also contributed.

From Daddy B. Nice's Top Ten "Breaking" Southern Soul Singles Review, May 2010.

5. "Reality Slowly Walks Us Down" -------------LGB

One of those special debuts that makes you wonder, "Why wasn't this niche ever filled before?" LGB is a huskier-voiced Barbara Lewis sound-alike. The odd title masks an incredible song done in the Lewis style that must be heard to be believed. At times LGB outdoes her influence.

A year later (2011), with fellow Carolinian Jonathan Burton ("Too Much Booty Shaking") playing bass, LGB followed it up with a one-of-a-kind song that seized the number-one spot on Daddy B. Nice's Top 10 "Breaking" Southern Soul Singles.

The song was "Jealous Wo-Man, Yes I Am," which would go on to become LGB's signature song and chart as the #12-ranked song of 2011 on Daddy B. Nice's Top 25 Songs:

From Daddy B. Nice's Top 25 Southern Soul Songs of 2011:

12. "Jealous Wo-man, Yes I Am"-------------LGB

The "Reality Slowly Walks Us Down" lady tackles something a little less philosophical, something we all can understand--a jealous wo-man--served up with a one-of-a-kind vocal, an off-the-wall-retro arrangement and stupendously old-school background singing.


Additionally, "Jealous Wo-Man" won the Best Outa-Left-Field Song Award on Daddy B. Nice's Best Of 2011.

In 2014, LGB released her second full-length CD, I Am Who I Am.

2. "Country Woman"------LGB

"Country Woman" is the centerpiece of LGB's new album, I Am Who I Am, not counting, of course, the popular and already-well-known "Jealous Wo-Man, Yes I Am." I like both the regular and Zydeco remixes--off-putting at first, they soon reward with originality.
