July 23, 2015:

A DADDY B NICE SHOUT-OUT TO WDLT MOBILE, ALABAMA'S DJ STORMY FOR PLAYING DAVID BRINSTON'S "KICK IT"

In a reversal of the usual male-dominated, streaming-radio scene, female deejays have long held a cabal on Southern Soul Saturdays at Mobile, Alabama's WDLT, where the esteemed Beverley McDowell has been succeeded by the lying-in-the-bushes, Saturday-morning charm of Nikki DeMarks, who has been cited frequently in Daddy B. Nice's Southern Soul Singles Previews over the years, not to mention memorialized in Unckle Eddie's (yes, that's how he spells it) paean to ornery husbands and brash daughters in "I'm Gone Tell Mama."

The possessor of a fine-tuned and extensive southern soul vocabulary, DJ Stormy fills the seat vacated by Nikki DeMarks in the early through late afternoon each Saturday, and last weekend she played David Brinston's five-minute-plus "Kick It" from his classic and long out-of-print album, FLY RIGHT.

Your Daddy B. Nice has been touting "Kick It" for years, even as the FLY RIGHT CD slipped further into oblivion. Johnny-come-lately fans of the current southern soul scene may find it hard to believe that turn-of-the-century songs like Stan Mosley's "Anybody Seen My Boo" and David Brinston's "Kick It" utilized hard-edged rhythm tracks as seductive as today's "Mr. Sexy Man" (Nellie "Tiger" Travis) or Big Yayo's "Cowgirl."

And when your Daddy B. Nice heard the Marshall Jones-produced rhythm track pounding from the stereo speakers last Saturday, it was with a mixture of awe and pleasure that simultaneously catered to my memory bank and my appreciation for the latest, cutting-edge sound. It was the first time in at least a decade I had heard the song on the radio. (Not posted on YouTube until 2011, the song has only received a meager 6,000-something plays.)

And yet--best of all--as "Kick It" was concluding with David Brinston's most passionate growls and yells on record, DJ Stormy exclaimed--

"That's my favorite David Brinston song."

....Amen, DJ Stormy.

DAVID BRINSTON: Back Seat Rider (David Brinston) Two Stars ** Dubious. Not much here.

David Brinston was one of the reasons your Daddy B. Nice left all the "other" music behind, and it's been uncomfortable watching the southern soul star slip a little, CD by CD, like a photograph fading to sepia in the sun.

I remember searching for the unknown artist who did a song called "Nothing But A Party." Back in those days, there was no one and no website to turn to for assistance. You searched through Napster and every other music avenue available, looking for these unknown artists and in many cases untitled songs you'd heard at random, often hampered by the wrong keywords, a process that took months and in some cases years. The David Brinston song was called simply "Party," or as it quickly became known, "Party 'Til The Lights Go Out," the fifteenth-ranked song on the Top 100
Southern Soul Songs: Daddy B. Nice's 21st Century Countdown

The song is magical. From the opening bars of the rhythm track, the music transports you to a beautiful place, a nirvana of love and dancing. Brinston's vocal is relaxed and confident, one of a kind. Brinston's longtime songwriter, Linda Stokes, who's always been humble about her singing abilities, can be heard in the background, just as she still can be heard today.

Ironically, there's a song on Brinston's new CD BACK SEAT RIDER that recapitulates "Party," and yet "Just Like Your Mama" is such a weak rendering by comparison that I didn't realize it was the "Party" background instrumental track until I heard the first few bars on the radio one afternoon.

That's the key to this album. If you don't have those fond memories of Brinston, there isn't much here. Brinston's unique high tenor was always fragile--at its best, vulnerable. Now it's downright weak. The voice literally disappears in the middle of notes. I was reminded of watching Bill Withers' acceptance into the 2015 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on TV the other night, when Bill had to let Stevie Wonder and John Legend sing his signature songs ("Lean On Me," "Use Me," etc.), and then, even Stevie Wonder, advancing in age, faltered. It was painfully obvious he was missing notes. The only singer left and able to carry the day was the youthful Legend.

I'm aware that I've been hard on Brinston CD's over the last decade, basically for the same reasons described above--nothing comes close to "Party" and the FLY RIGHT ("Party," "Kick It," etc.) album. And it's true there have been many great if idiosyncratic songs on those latter-year CD's, "Mississippi's Where It's At" for example--last year's excellent "Diamond In The Middle," for another, although the latter does sound like the voice of an old man. "911 (It's An Emergency"), from the same album Back On Track," has become another personal favorite.

Still, on this new set, with its nondescript material and production, I find nothing especially worthy of radio play: possibly, "Low Down, Dirty," "Just Like Your Mama," or "Back Seat Rider." Will your Daddy B. Nice be looking back a year later, wondering if I under-rated these songs, too? In my own defense, I was very complimentary of those songs in my review and gave the BACK ON TRACK album as a whole a much more positive three-star ranking.

I'd be interested in hearing from David's true fans. Is he meeting your expectations? Is he even relevant? In a new southern soul world of Bigg Robb, Tucka, J'Wonn and Pokey, does Brinston's tattered vocal sound still have appeal?

Daddy B. Nice's Updated Profile


This 21st Century Countdown Artist Guide to David Brinston features a number of new additions. Along with the YouTube presentations of David Brinston music now available by Internet link (scroll down to Tidbits #1), the About Artist section contains a greatly-expanded account of Brinston's once-murky, pre-Fly Right resume, not to mention extensive new reportage on David Brinston's career over the last decade.

Also, I've been writing tributes to Brinston's "Kick It" for years without managing to lift its profile in the slightest. The praise is always buried in the text. So I've decided, at least at this point in time, to use my "bully pulpit" to feature "Kick It" with "Party" on The Top 100 21st Century Southern Soul Countdown.

Maybe, between its placement in the Artist Guide headline and its propitious presence on YouTube, available for fans to hear in full at last, this masterpiece of Southern Soul will begin to get some of its due, not least from the artist himself. "Kick It" boasts the best hook, the best instrumental track and the most passionate vocal of David Brinston's career.

An Appreciation of "Kick It" by David Brinston:

Excerpted from Daddy B. Nice's Original Artist Guide to David Brinston (90's-00's).

The near-perfect song. The perfect recording. The perfect, if also perfectly obscure, artist.

There is really no defensible reason, other than that David Brinston is one of the most under-appreciated performers in contemporary rhythm and blues, to deny that "Kick It" can stand right along such standards as "Big Head Hundreds" by Johnnie Taylor as a dance floor jam of the first order.

The bass pounds the bottom of "Kick It" like there's no tomorrow. If you don't hear the rhythm track and it's not shaking you, you've got to play it louder. And, as if to accentuate how good the groove is--that's the effect, at any rate--Brinston holds off for a few bars and in a low voice-over summarizes the situation.

A few of the old pals--now married or otherwise tied down--want to get together again, and there's just no way David Brinston's everyday hero can bear to miss the occasion.

"I know I've got to go home,
And face this woman of mine.
But right now I got to kick it, y'all,
Just one more time."

Meanwhile, a metronomic chord change--normally the province of a guitar but here a Spector-like wash of sound--has welded symbiotically onto the chugging rhythm track, making a monster of a dance floor groove that only a couple of other Southern Soul singles in recent memory (Stan Mosley's "Anybody Seen My Boo," O. B. Buchana's "Let's Get Drunk") have come close to matching.

It would be mind-blowing if it were only an instrumental, but the lyrics--happily for us fans--are infused with uncommon particularity and charm.

"My old lady's getting tired,
Tired of my past.
She already told me
She was going to leave my ass."

Songwriter Linda Stokes, who wrote both "Kick It" and "Party," producer Marshall Jones and Brinston make for a creative trio of unusual skill and originality. But the key is Brinston's unique tenor and syncopated rhythms as perfected in "Kick It." If Sam Cooke or Smokey Robinson were recording today, their work might sound like this.

Listen to David Brinston's "Party Till The Lights Go Out" on YouTube while you read.

From Daddy B. Nice's May 1, 2010 Commentary: "Party 'Till The Lights Go Out" Never Grows Old,"

Out on the chitlin' circuit's smokey dance floors and sun-drenched lawns, hips sway, arms spread, pelvises roll and smiles abound. And those first beads of sweet sweat pop out on upper lips.

"You might be with someone's woman
Or somebody's man.
We ain't here to knock it.
We just want to dance."

This is the song that countless chitlin' circuit club advertisements have used as their background music on Deep South radio stations for going on ten years. Its effortless-sounding rhythm section has never been equaled. Brinston's sugary vocal is one of the most winning performances in the history of contemporary Southern Soul.

About David Brinston (21st Century)

David Brinston was born in Marks, Mississippi--near blues hub Clarksdale--in 1959, and spent much of his formative years in Clarksdale. In the early nineties Brinston moved to Memphis and began performing on Beale Street and other chitlin' circuit venues.

After signing with Jomar Records, Brinston produced his first single "Love Maker." His first major recorded single, "Hit And Run," produced by Marshall Jones, was a hybrid, mixing elements of mainstream, commercial R&B with Southern Soul, chitlin' circuit-style rhythm and blues.

Brinston recorded two albums worth of material for Jomar. His first album, Hit And Run (1992) featured the single along with songs like "Trouble Maker," "Love Maker" and "Dirty Lover," all of which began to garner a small following on radio outlets in north-central Mississippi. The second album was Slow Down (From The Run Around).

In 1993, Brinston recorded the single that made his brand. "Two Way Love Affair," became his biggest hit to date, although it would not appear on an album until 1999. Meanwhile, Brinston teamed up with producer Carl Marshall for the CD The Real Deal in 1997.

1998's Too Hot album (R & B) marked the appearance of That Stokes Girl--songwriter Linda Stokes (the ballad "I Loved Being Tied Down")--who would become Brinston's special muse, tailoring songs for him ("Party 'Till Lights Go Out," "Kick It," "Rockin'," "Beat It Up," etc.) for close to two decades.

Somebody's Cuttin' My Cake (METT, 1999) featured the long-running single, "Two Way Love Affair," written by another composer/musician who would become a perennial Brinston associate--Morris J. Williams--in addition to the uncharacteristically deep, smoky soul of the title tune, "Somebody's Cuttin' My Cake," also written by Williams, which gained Brinston a further underground following.

All of these albums were scantly distributed, as was his next, Brinston's claim to fame, Fly Right (Suzie Q, 2001), which created a chitlin' circuit sensation.

The Stokes-written "Party Til The Lights Go Out" and "Kick It" became major hit singles throughout the Stations of the Deep South and attracted additional fans to the newly-emerging Southern Soul genre as a whole.

The album was produced and in large part written by Marshall Jones, whose groove-heavy rhythm tracks were instrumental in its success, and published by Stan and Lenny Lewis's Suzie Q Records, based in Shreveport, Louisiana.

The Fly Right album also spawned the chitlin' circuit singles "You're So Freak, Girl," "I Caught Ya," "After All I Do" and "I Paid The Price."

The fan response to David Brinston's Fly Right and an opening-act tour with Marvin Sease led to a contract with Jackson, Mississippi's prestigious Malaco Records' (home of Johnnie Taylor, Z. Z. Hill, etc.) affiliate Waldoxy Records for the 2005 CD, Rockin'.

Despite three new Stokes tunes (including the title song) and the addition of another talented writer/producer, John Ward, on the well-received single, "Hard Working Lady," the relatively generic album failed to record a major hit and passed without much notice.

Brinston went on his own the following year, publishing the most eclectic collection of his career with Mississippi Boy. With an opening chord progression identical to Brinston's "Two Way Love Affair," the album title and title tune bore no relation to the Floyd Hamberlin-written, Will T. and Charles Wilson-performed song, "Mississippi Boy" that was causing a sensation across the chitlin' circuit at the time, and in fact the choice of name generated some backlash from fans who perceived it to be unethical.

The confusion with the Hamberlin classic was unfortunate because the S. Parsom-written "Mississippi Boy had first-rate, evocative lyrics:

"Mississippi's where it's hot.
All we do is party and drink
A hell of a lot."

Eventually, the song became better-known throughout the chitlin' circuit as "Mississippi's Where It's At." The single "Good Woman (With Some Bad Habits)" also notched substantial air play.

Brinston signed a contract with John Ward's Ecko Records in Memphis, Tennessee in 2007 and settled into a series of annual, middling, formulaic collections that gave the singer a steady but dimming presence on Southern Soul radio.

Each album featured a competent lead single surrounded by lesser "B-side' material, the exception being the best of the lot, Dirty Woman, as follows:

Here I Go Again (Ecko, 2007, prominent single "Too Many Women");

Party Time! (Ecko, 2008, prominent single "I Just Love Women");

Dirty Woman (Ecko, 2009, prominent singles "Dirty Woman" (a John Cummings/Morris Williams-composed duet featuring J. Blackfoot on vocals with Brinston), "Something I Want (a John Ward-written tune later done as a popular duet with Ms. Jody on her Ms. Jody's In The House album), and the John Ward-written "Don't Tease Me With It");

....and Beat It Up (Ecko, 2010, prominent single "Beat It Up").

Despite a two-decade career in which David Brinston created a durable brand as a respected Al Green-evolved singer and thematically-incorrigible ladies' man, his self-published 2012 album It's Gonna Be a Showdown passed without promotion and received scant notice on the chitlin' circuit.

"Me and my friends
Meet in the same old spot.
Been coming here for so long, y'all,
And it's really hot.

I've got to kick it, y'all.
I've got to kick it, y'all, one more time.

Now I'll be back, baby.
Now you know I will.
I love to kick it with my friends, babe,
And that's my only thrill.

Now I ain't looking for no woman
Because, baby, you are my life.
If you let me kick it tonight, baby,
I'll stay home tomorrow night."

"David Brinston: A Cautionary Tale" (Excerpted from Daddy B. Nice's Corner, 2007)

David Brinston's career is a cautionary tale for young recording artists who believe the first hit or two is just the beginning of an endless gravy train of hits. 

You can spend a career trying to get back to the lofty place where an initial hit transported you, and what you thought was as easy as falling backwards can become the hardest thing in the world to do. 

All I know is I'm having a hard time getting used to the "new" David Brinston--today's David Brinston--the middle-of-the-pack journeyman, always to be counted on for a certain professional level of Southern Soul music, but nothing extraordinary or magical. 

I'm in love with the great, unknown-genius David Brinston of the early 00's, and I don't want to give up that reason for cherishing him. Latter-day fans don't know what they're missing, and, sadly, with so much of the early material out of print, you'd have a hard time convincing them of what a Southern Soul star David Brinston really was.

"My baby's got a diamond in the middle.
She knows how to make that thing wiggle."

April 19, 2014:


DAVID BRINSTON: Back On Track (Delta Down) Three Stars *** Solid. The artist's fans will enjoy. Three songs from David Brinston's new album BACK ON TRACK have already wormed their way into my head so far I may never get them out. Normally, that would be cause for recommendation and celebration, but the collection as a whole--praiseworthy though it assuredly is--does have flaws that throw up a "yellow" flag for fans not already under Brinston's thrall.

As with all of David's latter-day albums, your Daddy B. Nice stacks BACK ON TRACK against his first two CD's (now long out of print), the ones that had Stan & Lenny Lewis and Marshall Love at the helm.

Notwithstanding the many great Brinston songs recorded since ("I Just Love Women," for example), it's hard to describe to today's fans how much the early-century David Brinston charmed fans, attracting them to the new southern soul music coming out of the Deep South. The songs, arrangements and vocals were close to full-blown masterpieces. The songs from that era generally regarded as most representative of David's since-somewhat-eroded "southern soul stardom" are:

Listen to David Brinston singing "Two Way Love Affair" on YouTube.

Listen to David Brinston singing "Party 'Til The Lights Go Out" on YouTube.

Listen to David Brinston singing "Kick It" on YouTube.

Listen to David Brinston singing "Hit & Run" on YouTube.

Like their illustrious forbears, the attention-getting songs on the new Brinston LP have the same strong songwriting base and the same ability to take over a corner of your mind usually reserved for commercial jingles.

I first encountered "Tragic Love" via the radio: Nikki DeMarks in Mobile, Alabama. From...

Daddy B. Nice's Top 10 "BREAKING" Southern Soul Singles Review For. . .

----------MARCH 2014------------

10. “Tragic Love”----------David Brinston

This is brand new David Brinston getting back to his roots, vocally-speaking. Like an old Fredrick Brinson. (That’s a joke.) But there’s truth in the fact that at their best, both the young artist and the old artist convey weathered wisdom and strafed vulnerability. Thumbs up for the (some-might-say-amateurish) female background: it fits in with the overall strangeness.


Then I received the hard copy of the album and instantly began humming the first track, "Diamond In The Middle," with its right-on, naughty couplet:

"My baby's got a diamond in the middle.
She knows how to make that thing wiggle."

Daddy B. Nice's Top 10 "BREAKING" Southern Soul Singles Review For. . .

----------APRIL 2014------------

4. ”Diamond In The Middle” ------------David Brinston

Just when you think the genre has exhausted all the possibilities for sexual double entendres (i.e. "stand up in it," "rock that man in the boat," "beat it up,"), we’re surprised with yet another: "diamond in the middle," which certainly strikes your Daddy B. Nice as both apt and vivid. If David Brinston’s one-of-a-kind vocal were any more tattered, it'd blow away in the wind.


Finally, I've succumbed to "911," a contagious, "Kick It"-style dance track with an ambience reminiscent of Donnie Ray's "Who's Rocking You?"

Other tunes with underlying strength and promise are "One Way" (with a hint of "Hit & Run") and "Your Love," with That Stokes Girl filling in on female background, as she does on "Tragic Love."

What separates the early classics from the new tracks? It's easy to name the culprit--production, lack of budget--but it's harder to put a finger on the specifics. The participants on this close-knit CD are people your Daddy B. Nice cherishes: laborers in the musical vineyard who have given their lives to contemporary southern soul.

Morris Williams, longtime Ecko Records associate, has become the defacto producer on jobs Ecko CEO John Ward can't make "work" on his higher overhead. Williams, for instance, produced the latest John Cummings CD, BACK TO THE GRIND, also reviewed on this page. But muscular rhythm tracks (ala Bigg Robb or Big Yayo) are not Williams' talent.

Linda Stokes is Brinston's longtime songwriter ("Nothing But A Party," etc.) and in a very real sense his muse. She contributes background vocals, songwriting and general support to the CD, but sophisticated vocals are not her bailiwick.

David's brother Terry Brinston is executive producer and sound engineer. In sum, this is a "family" effort, straight from the source (meaning authentic southern soul), but lacking in the polish and panache that powered the early hits.

For veteran southern soul fans, the best songs on this set are too good to miss, yet even a Brinston-watcher can easily imagine better versions. Ultimately the difference may lie in Brinston himself.

The vocals which in David's earlier years seemed to pour out as effortlessly as syrup in August have grown less generous, even a bit pinched and grating. At times, even on the superb "Diamond In The Middle," David calls attention to his delivery (whether consciously or unconsciously), which shouldn't happen, and didn't happen in the old days when David mesmerized us with:

"You might be with someone else's woman
Or someone else's man.
We're not here to knock it,
We're just here to dance."

(from "Party 'Til the Lights Go out/Nothing But A Party").
