No Calvin and No Avail!!

I saw a post on Facebook about the new generation, to my surprise you missing two of the top contenders in southern soul, I’ve been following southern soul since the JT and Tyrone Davis days....

Calvin and Avail as well as Tucka n Pokey are the reason us women still come to southern soul shows the guys pack out venues and have multiple songs that have millions of views on YouTube ... however I do agree with your list to some extent ... but these two should have definitely been in the top 5 these guys are real soul singers and still selling music... u should probably follow these two more

Ninna

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Hey, I really appreciate your insights, and I’ll probably reply a little more in a few days. But I wanted you to know that I just posted an article about why I don’t have Calvin there. Check it out and tell me what you think. I’m really curious about your reaction.

P.S. Avail’s coming…

Ninna replies:

Hello sir, thanks for your write back! I totally get it now after reading the article . Yes yes I agree 100 percent ... I’ve all ways said Calvin and Avail where more polished for Rnb than most southern soul singers not to take away from any other southern soul artist because I love them all. Jwonn is also a very polished singer and artist that could easily cross over.

But I love the article on Calvin you hit the nail on the head, and I can see the same with Avail

Also look out for female artist West Love I’m loving what she has to offer to southern soul

Thanks for the write back again sir.

Thank You Letter


Greetings Daddy B Nice,

I would just like to take the time to thank you for listening and acknowledging my music. I know Hip Hop is not the most popular when it comes to blending it with Southern Soul. But I hope the fans can see, that since 2014, I have put real time and effort into bridging the gap between Hip Hop and Southern Soul. Although I'm a rapper, I'm still in that same juke joint, hole in the wall or backyard as any other artist. I've seen more and more rappers come into this field, and I would like to think I had something to do with that. To see a Hip Hop fused Southern Soul song, my latest single, (Take Your Time), reach number one on your charts shows growth. It gives me the hope that if done right, and done with genuine passion, that people will be receptive of the music. Lastly I would like to say artists like Black Zack, Big Money and Grandmaster Slice are trailblazers as it pertains to this "Hip Hop Soul," and if they are reading this, I just want to say thank you as well. Again thank you for all that you do..... Niiiiiccccceeeee

Joe Nice

Daddy B. Nice notes:

Joe Nice scored the #1 Southern Soul Single with "Take Your Time" (feat. Sean Dolby) in March 2021.

Listen to Joe Nice and Sean Dolby singing "Take Your Time" on YouTube.

Denise LaSalle ALWAYS THE QUEEN Correction


Greetings –

I hope you are well and safe!

It turns out that Ms. LaSalle misidentified the name of the club she was performing in, as shown in the photo on pg. 134 of Always the Queen. She remembered it as the High Chaparral; it was actually the Burning Spear at 5521 South State Street in Chicago, which was owned by WVON DJs E. Rodney Jones and Pervis Spann. It’s the same club where Jones presented her with her Gold Record for “Trapped By A Thing Called Love” – that photo is also on pg. 134.

The correction has already been made in the e-book version of the autobiography, and if there are any reprintings of the physical book, it will be there, too. Nonetheless, I want to get the word out as much as possible; it really means a lot to me to clarify this, because I’m sure it was simply an honest mistake / slip of the tongue on her part. She was no longer around for me to run the final draft by her so there was no opportunity for her to correct it, which I'm sure she would have done.

Can you please run this correction on your page? It would mean a lot to me, and to her memory.

Thank you so much for your ongoing support.

David Whiteis

South Florida Wants Southern Soul Concerts!

Pictured: J-Wonn

Staff and promoters, we the people and adamant fans of southern soul music and it`s meaning. However there has not been a southern soul concert held in south Florida ( Miami, West Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, Tampa,Orlando) since i DON`T KNOW WHEN.!!!!!. Can we get a concert of some of those blues artist here? The weather is always nice here especially if it`s an outdoors event. Thanks for the consideration of having a tour through our part of the world.

Kurt

Daddy B. Nice replies:

I love South Florida (except for the crazy drivers), Kurt, and I'm really fond of Fort Lauderdale. Just a month ago, I had a request for a "Daddy B. Nice Appreciation Party" in St. Petersburg, and I can put you in touch with that promoter if you like. But in general, talk to your local people with entrepreneurial skills. You're a little off the beaten track for southern soul, but not so far it can't be done. You need local promoters and venues, and "if you build it, they will come".

Looking For A Song: PLEASE have some good news!

Greetings & Happy New Year Year Daddy B. Nice! I'm Parish Cratic and I would first like to say THANK YOU for moving Southern Soul & Blues genre forward after all these years! As a DJ in the genres, You have help me tremendously over the decades & for that you are truly appreciated.

I was going through your awards & categories for 2014 of best Mid Tempo songs for that year. I came across "Big Al - Southern Soul" slide and I decide to look it up on youtube just to see how it sounds & all I came up with is the line dance instructions. I think this song is AMAZING! I went to Itunes with my fingers heavily crossed with disappointment in the end. With all that being said do you have any idea where I could find a quality copy of this jam? I tried tracking down the artist to no avail also. I just can't let this song go! Hope to hear from you soon...good or bad.

Best,
Parish aka DJ PC Baby

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Sorry, Parish, I must have overlooked your e-mail in the crush of letters I've been getting since the beginning of the new year. Yeah, I found your song on SoundCloud. Here's your link to a full copy of Big Al's "Southern Soul Slide".

Parish replies:

Thank you so much!"

Looking For A Song Letter: Song--Who Is This?



Hi Daddy B,

I hope you are are doing well and staying safe. Just don't know what I would be doing if it were not for music right now. I'm looking for a song that I heard on DJ VJ Bubba Yae's Sunday Matinee on 01/31/21. The lyrics are as follows: "Go tell your mama, go tell your pappy, girl you done found a sugar daddy. Someone to pick you up in a brand new Cadi, Girl you done found a sugar daddy. I can pay your light bills I can pay your rent." Attached is a sample of the song I downloaded from Bubba Yae's session.

Thanks and best regards,

Kevin

Daddy B. Nice replies:

The sample of the song you downloaded from Bubba Yae's session was key in finding this. I couldn't place the male singer but I immediately recognized Sassy D as the female co-vocalist. By googling "Sassy D" and "Sugar Daddy" I was able to come up with a single source, a mixtape by DJ Cutty Cut that listed the tune as "6.JAY HALL Ft SASSY D - SUGAR DADDY." Googling "Jay Hall topic" next, I came up with nothing on his page. Then I went into my own music library and instantly found Jay Hall's "Let's Roll," featuring Theodis Ealey, which I charted in 2019 as "Let's Roll (Tennesse Whiskey") (the dominant refrain). Unfortunately, Hall apparently hasn't packaged "Sugar Daddy" for commercial release. Hope this helps.

Kevin replies:

Daddybnice,

Thanks for the response. I knew you could determine the source. I appreciate you finding the source. I Knew I had heard the female singer but could not place her. Thanks again for finding out the origin of the song!

Best regards,

Kevin

Then Covid happened, and months passed, and the concert was rescheduled for May 1, 2021...

CLJ writes:

Hey sir the invitation is still on! Depending on how this Covid-19 is being handled at the time.

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Hey CLJ, I’m thinking of lining this up with some other gigs and DBN appreciations. Would love to hook up live with my buds Avail and Jeter at your gig too. I’ve been holding off for a long time and I don’t really want to go around with a mask on, but at this point it might be better than nothing.

Dear Daddy B Nice

For 10 years I have been reading you're concert calendar and posting my shows and events and I want to thank you for everything you do for the Southern Soul industry and for being a blessing and supporting Oak 93.5 fm DJ Southern Soul host of the R&B oldies. Please give me a call I would love to deejay a appreciation party for you . We can charge $10 call me I have a venue in St. Petersburg FL

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Thanks, DJ Southern Soul Oak. I’d love to do an appreciation party like that. The timing is the thing, and I’d sure like to do that without a mask. I’ve got another gig I’ve been invited to May 1st, and I’d like to line up a couple more events so I can move from town to town in one long trip. Let me know if that works and what your time preferences are, and I’ll keep in touch with you. Looking forward to having some fun with you.

DBN notes: It's in the works...

***********************

Thanks from CoCo Wade

OMG Daddy B. Nice!!

First and foremost...I must start by saying MY HEART IS FULL. Daddy B. Nice, it is my utmost ambition to be a studious learner of the music genres including but not limited to Soul, Blues, R&B and Southern Soul of course. While you have so graciously acknowledged our work on the recent "Get Up and Dance" album; we continue to soak up all that you have to share as a pioneer of the music and entertainment industry. Based on your commentary alone, it has been insisted that you are not only a guru, but you are well established as to know every inch of what music is inclined to do and consist of ranging from your listening ear to picking apart incredible details of which most wouldn't even know where to begin or how to explain. You are an original indeed. Listen, I...we...simply can't THANK YOU enough, nor will we ever be able to repay you for such recognition. But, what we can do is this-keep composing and producing timeless music. Music for the people. Feel good music. Quality music. Memorable music.

~Most truly grateful

CoCo Wade on behalf of myself and Smallworld Studio Productions

Daddy B. Nice notes: CoCo Wade will also perform at the May 1st concert in Lithonia, Georgia (Atlanta) promoted by CLJ (Christopher Lamont Johnson) above.

Looking For Lady J

Dear daddy b nice,

I am trying to find where can I buy lady j music.like I fell in love and the sampler.just found on you tube I am loving them want to buy.is she she making music.please help I looked every where I could. Want to buy please help if you can.

odessa

Daddy B. Nice replies:

I get two or three Lady J letters per year, Odessa, and you just missed a big round of letters and replies a few months ago. The records are out of print. Keep watching those YouTube videos! In the meantime, check out what I'm talking about with Lady J's What Goes Around Comes Around. Or...if you have an extra thousand bucks burdening your pocketbook, there's always the sole copy of Lady J's Sneakin' Love for only $902.81! Well, now that you're probably totally freaked out, here's something a little more sensible: a site where you can download Lady J's album MISSING YOU. with my all-time, favorite Lady J tune and vocal: "Part Time Love".

Looking for a song...

Hi Daddybnice,

congrats to your homepage. I think southern soul is one of the greatest things on earth.
I am looking for a song/video that i can´t find anymore.I think it was made not many years ago. It is about an older singer who sings about something sexual(that he still got it) and in the video they are playing poker or dominos or something (mainly with women i think). It is a great song.

Thank you so much if you can help me.

best wishes
Peter

The Same Song: Who Gets The Credit?

Pictured: Cupid

Daddy B Nice,

I got this song from Hump Dog around May 2020 and now Cupid is releasing it Dec 2020. I ask the question who's getting the credit for the song Hump Dog or Cupid????

DJ Sir Rockinghood

Attached:

Hump Dog feat. Nebu: "Headz Or Tailz (The Crawfish Song)"

Cupid feat. MC World & Nebu: "Crawfish"

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Finally got to this and downloaded both. I don’t think the Cupid version improves on the Hump Dog original. In fact, I like the Hump Dog version better, at least on first impression. I see that I also got the Cupid version from 5 Star Pro the day before your e-mail. I don’t know the answer to your question. Did you find out anything in the interim? I don’t think I have Cupid’s contact currently, but I might pose this question to readers (and possibly Cupid) in the Mailbag. I notice he retains the back up singer Nebu, whose understated vocal I like, so he must have negotiated with Hump Dog in some manner.

Is the state of Colorado a good place for southern soul blues musicians to move to?

Pictured: Peggy Scott-Adams

Hi Daddy B Nice,

My name is Rosette ---- and my husband's name Danny ----. My husband, Danny, in his mid 50's, is a southern soul blues musician. He is a professional bass guitar player, songwriter, and singer. We live in Charlotte, NC, prior the Covid-19 pandemic, my husband has difficulty finding guitarists and pianists that can play southern soul blues style music rhythms, and musicians that love this style of music in our area, and even places that welcome southern soul blues music.

Is the state of Colorado a good place for southern soul blues musicians to move to where they will find other musicians that love and able to play this style of music and places that have audiences that love and enjoy southern soul blues music? If so, what part of Colorado is the best place for that style of music rhythm, where my husband can find other musicians and places that welcome southern soul blues music? Please, help us, we appreciate you. Thank you. You may text or call my husband, Danny, telephone number: -------- or you may respond back to this email: -------

Sincerely,

Danny and Rosette

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Thank you so much for the kind and carefully-detailed question, Rosette. Other than having in common the current southern soul obsession with cowboy boots and hats, and what Narvel Echols says in "Pour Me A Drank"--- that "Out in Colorado/You can smoke all day"---I can't think of a single reason a southern soul or blues musician would want to come to Colorado. Nobody knows about southern soul up here, and I don't waste my time trying to promote it here. I keep my hometown in Boulder because I could never survive the heat down South and because I'm a health and work-out freak, which is big in Boulder. But when I'm at home in Colorado doing my southern soul thing, I go up to my mountain cabin where I can get above all the whiteness of the culture around me, until I can see all the way across Kansas and Missouri to the Mississippi Delta.

The late Mel Waiters played two back-to-back dates at a Denver club some ten years ago. Bobby Rush and William Bell came through Fort Collins, Co. on their northern college tour around five years ago, and that sums up the southern soul scene in Colorado over the last twenty years. There are no promoters of southern soul, since the distance to be travelled by performers is so great.

Peggy Scott-Adams recorded her southern soul classics in Los Angeles but her heart and soul (like mine) resides in the Delta. And that's where I'd recommend you move if you want to be among like-minded musicians: Jackson, Mississippi, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Memphis, Tennessee, Shreveport, Louisiana. Jackson is the best because you can actually hear southern soul daily on the radio, but Baton Rouge and Shreveport are the hot spots currently from a music-recording standpoint. Hope this helps. Good luck to you both, and may your plans bear fruit.

Correction re: "Nose Wide Open" Producers

Jeter Jones had advised Daddy B Nice that Slack, not Beat Flippa, produced Magic One's version of "Nose Wide Open". (December letters.) And in the process of correcting that mistake I made another, stating that although Beat Flippa did not produce Magic One's "Nose Wide Open," the Slack-produced track was included on Beat Flippa's P.O.T.Y. album, along with Beat Flippa's Benito/Lady Q version of "Nose Wide Open".

No, I was wrong. I’m just looking at P.O.T.Y (with 27 tracks!) and Magic One’s “Nose Wide Open” is not on it. Got confused on that one.

Hello Daddy B Nice, how are you.

First of all let me say thanks to you for all that you do. You've been keeping artists and fans informed now for quite a while.

One of my cousins ran across you on the world web and was very excited to see some reviews that you had done on me. Some very nice work, I might add.

I know that you love accurate info so I wanted you to know that my Correct Birthday is October 3, 1961. Its not in March like one review said.

Anyway , thanks again for all that you do and if you ever need me, let me know. I have another cd dropping real soon.

Thanks

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Hello Vickie I just wanted to let you know I’m honored that you write me and I wish you the best….It’s been a lot of years with this southern soul, hasn’t it….I will flag this letter and get to those corrections at some point…Keep in touch!

Correction: RE: "Nose Wide Open"

Slack produced magic one song "nose wide open".

Jeter Jones

Daddy B Nice replies:

Oh thank you, sorry I screwed up. I thought that was on the Beat Flippa album. Extend my apologies to Slack and I’ll try to make up for it in the future.

Jeter replies:

awesome, U already knows we gonna make sure u have all the right info

Daddy B Nice notes:

Actually, it IS on the Beat Flippa P.O.T.Y. album, but it is produced by Slack. In his monthly newsletter, Daddy B Nice had written:

Time to retire "sidepiece" and welcome "nose wide open" as the new "go-to" meme of southern soul. The term refers to someone, most usually a male, who is completely smitten by a female. Magic One scored with his soulful version of "Nose Wide Open" in September (#3). Now it's Benito (the youngster who did “Guademala”) and Lady Q’s turn, and it's not only the young bull's (Benito's) nostrils flaring; Lady Q's nose is quivering too. Beat Flippa on the tracks---both from P.O.T.Y.

RE: Ms. Jody's A Man Like That

Hey Daddy,

Have you heard Ms. Jody's new single "A Man Like That"? It's really good and I'd love to see you give it some recognition.

Letitia

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Spoken like a fan, Letitia. I picked "A Man Like That" as the best single from Ms. Jody's new album Get It Get It a year ago when it first came out. (It also made #12 on the Top 25 Singles of 2019.) Ms. Jody must have finally gotten together with John Ward and Larry Chambers from Ecko Records and said, "That darned Daddy B. Nice knows what he's talking about". They released it as a single and it's getting lots of airplay and has become very popular.

Listen to Ms. Jody singing "A Man Like That" on YouTube.

RE: Scott’s letter about SOUTHERN SOUL VOLUME ONE

Pictured: David Brinston and O.B. Buchana, whose original, definitive, trail-blazing singles of "Party 'Til The Lights Go Out: Nothing But A Party" and "Let's Get Drunk" were released respectively on Stan Lewis's Suzie Q label out of Shreveport, Louisiana.

(This is a continuation of past letters. Scroll down to "October 1, 2020: RE: Looking For An Album Letter: Suzie Q's Southern Soul Series" and "August 16, 2020: Looking For An Album Letter: Suzie Q's Southern Soul Series".)

Peter responds:

Southern Soul Volume one was released on the Paula label in 1997. Volume two was released in 1999 on the SUZIE Q label. I don’t think that there was a volume 3.

Peter Klug

Daddy B. Nice responds:

Thanks, Peter. This clears up where that Vol. 1 of the series came through. And if I remember correctly, Stan Lewis also ran Paula?

Peter responds:

Yes, Ronn and Jewel too, and others that aren’t at the top of my head. There are a lot of Jewel / Ronn VA cd’s available including a box set. All Good stuff!

Daddy B. Nice notes:

Among the rare yet surprising number of white guys who passionately loved black music---Benny Goodman (the King of Swing), Leonard Chess (the head of Chess Records), Elvis Presley (the pioneer of Rock and Roll), Dick Clark (the host of "American Bandstand"), Tommy Couch (the head of Malaco Records), John Ward (the head of Ecko Records) to name just a few---Shreveport's Stan Lewis may have been the most deliriously committed. The man lived and breathed rhythm and blues and devoted nearly every waking moment of his life to disseminating it. When, in an exchange of letters in DBN's Mailbag earlier this year, various pundits debated the true birthplace of southern soul music---Jackson, Memphis or Shreveport---the reason Shreveport was on the list was Stan Lewis. Thanks to Peter Klug for also recommending this obituary and summation of Stan Lewis's life at "Shreveport music legend Stan 'The Record Man' Lewis dies, age 91."

LOOKING FOR A SONG LETTER

Hello daddybnice,

I am emailing you seeking your help.

I heard this song on Starpoint radio station out of the UK ( London). It was a paul Andre Southern Soul Cafe podcast Sept.27, 2020.

The song was a remix and sampling of Cameo's song "CANDY" .

The artist voice sounded like Al Lindsey.
The intro into the song was about 15 seconds long and sounded like Sir Charles Jones.

Midway into the song their was female rapper.

if possible can you tell me what the title / name of the song is and who the artist is.
I really enjoy reading your website each month. any info that you may be able to, provide would be most greatly appreciated. Thanks.

kind regards,
Jerry

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Your hunches came close, Jerry. That is a new cover of Cameo's "Candy" by Sir Charles Jones and Jeter Jones taken from their new album, The Jones Boyz: 2 Kings. Coincidentally, I just wrote a review of that album.

Listen to Jeter Jones & Sir Charles Jones singing "Candy" on YouTube.

Jerry replies:

Thank you Sir: Keep up the great work, its appreciated.

RE: Looking For An Album Letter: Suzie Q's Southern Soul Series

Daddy B. Nice notes:

A month ago, Scott wrote:

I'm writing about Nathaniel Kimble, Chris Ivy and JR Blu for a special Mississippi Delta issue of Living Blues, and am writing a bit about the term "Southern Soul." I have the Volume 2 of the Susie Q "Southern Soul" series from 1999, but I can't find anything about Volume 1, and think that there might be a Volume 3 (or more).

Do you know?

Thanks!

Scott

DJ Sir Rockinghood responds:

I'm not really sure but I got my disc from Susie Q records as a promo back in the day. It would let you know what they were dropping (like a new song alert). Not a lot of airplay/ club play was going on during this time and they had a lot of artists. Donnie Ray, Carl Sims, Maurice Wynn, Jerry L and many more. There was only one volume released (that was all I received). If you want to see the albums or single released by Susie Q records follow link: Suzie Q Records at Discogs.

DJ Sir Rockinghood

Daddy B. Nice adds:

Wow, DJ Sir Rockinghood. Can't believe you were receiving promos from Suzie Q Records back in the 90's. My hat's off to you!

Their records, like O.B. Buchana's original and best version of "Let's Get Drunk," Maurice Wynn's "What She Don't Know Won't Hurt Her" and David Brinston's "Party" and "Kick It" (both written by Linda Stokes and produced by Marshall Jones), stoked my passion for southern soul for good.

Listen to Maurice Wynn singing "What She Don't Know" on YouTube.

P.S. I don't think the Discogs inventory is anywhere near complete or exhaustive.

RE: MP3'S

Good Evening, I am a Philly DJ and I have been recently introduced to Southern Soul. I DID NOT know it was as popular as it is. I am interested in downloading the music but am unable to find it in MP3 format. I saw on your website that it is available but unable to locate it. Can you assist? Of course I am willing to pay if need be. It would even be convenient if a Record Pool was set up strictly for your type of music and we could simply pay there.

Thank you in advance...

Your Friendly Neighborhood DJ SPYDR

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Any southern soul tune you want to buy is just a Google or two away. But if you're talking about within the website, go to Daddy B. Nice's CD Store (Now With MP3's). Some of the music precedes mp3's, is out of print or out-dated, but most current music (with the option of buying mp3's) abides. Also search out the over 200 artist guides on the site, each with song information and links to CD's/mp3's. The artist guides also contain "New Album Alerts" with links to mp3's. And there are "buy mp3" options within all the CD reviews I write.

I don't know of any southern soul record pools (not to say there aren't any), but if you're looking for the latest trending singles, you could do worse than follow Daddy B. Nice's Top 10 Singles Charts and Best Of Year pages and then take your likes to your favorite mp3-seller.

Hey! Shout-out to Philly!

Mega thanks to you my friend for the accolades on my most recent project “Memphis Blues Brothers”. It’s just my attempt to showcase and shower a little love on some of my local music contemporaries.
