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.

January 17, 2021:

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.

Read Daddy B. Nice's five-star ("southern soul heaven") review of Beat Flippa's Producer Of The Year album.

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

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
Vickie Baker

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.

Thank You Letters

Saying thanks on behalf team Narvel Echols. We really thank you for recognizing that he is bringing good music to the table. By giving him three top 10 rankings, "Country Folk Party" "Ripping and Running" and including #1 for October "Pour Me A Drank" all from the new album "Return Of The Country Boy" is quite an accomplishment and greatly appreciated. More to come.

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!

Looking For An Artist: Robert "The Duke" Tillman

Hello

I am trying to find contact for Mr. Robert the Duke Tillman or management. Can you please help me.

Thank you.
Kayla

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Robert "The Duke" Tillman has been inactive as a recording artist for many years now. The only hope I can give you is the fact that Robert has appeared locally in Jackson, Mississippi from time to time during the past few years. Unfortunately, most of Jackson's local venues (meaning bars, restaurants and small clubs) have closed doors and/or curtailed live performances during this year's Covid-19 outbreak. But if you have no other alternatives, that is where I'd start, contacting Jackson's live-music venues and inquiring with their owners or managers. I'll also post your query in the Mailbag, in case any readers can help.

Looking For A Song Letter: Arthur Young's "Catfishing"

Hey Daddy,

I'm a fan of Arthur Young, and I was interested by your comment in your "News & Notes" (August 1st) that you'd heard an early recording of Young's "Catfishing" on his Facebook page that was better than the one that's being previewed on YouTube ahead of the album release. Is that still up? Can you help me find that?

Shonda

Daddy B. Nice replies:

Sure, Shonda. That's still posted in Arthur's Artist Guide. But here it is again. I don't want to say it's the perfect production, but I like the thickness of the vocal and the more relaxed tempo. The updated version has a quicker tempo and a pared-down vocal that loses some of Arthur's charisma, I think. Oh, and by the way, my memory of it was a little off: Arthur's not playing the guitar, he's just singing along to his recording.

Listen to Arthur Young singing "Catfishing" on Facebook.

Jeter Jones Checks In

First let me say it is an honor to be an entertainer. My government name is SFC (retired) Gary Charles Jones aka Jeter Jones. It seems like yesterday that I started my journey in Southern Soul/ Blues music. I’m am still learning so much and yes I am evolving. I sat goals that have helped me. Winning Blues Critics Artist of the Year 2019 was one of them. My motto is humble & hungry, I pray to someday become an ICON in my genre during my time. Yes Slack is the executive producer on my MuFassa CD, along with some new blood on “Mind playing tricks on me” produced by Chris “Bubba” Washington whom is also my band leader. Having Sir Charles Jones as my mentor is also a plus. JBE is about bring some new heat as WestDawn, Tasha Mac, & Volton Wright Are about to drop their debut Albums. Hot producers like J-Swagg, DJ Scruggs, and Chris Bubba Washington have also joined the camp. Being a great artists has been a goal but consideration as a great Song writer will also keep some checks coming in. Here in Shreveport La, at JBE, we are working hard to make our mark and gain respect for our genre in this industry. Southern Soul is the new Hip Hop, and I pray that we can gain respect for this genre thru great music. Thanks for all the people that come to see me cut up every weekend. I have had a hand full of weekends off since 2016 which is a blessing. I wanna thank the fans for making me a Kang. Peers call me the hardest working man in Southern Soul, I say that the work I do shall speak for me. Thanks to Bobby blue bland, Johnny Taylor, ZZ Hill, Marvin Sease, Little Milton, Muddy Waters & many more for giving me a great blue print for being a blues man. At the end of my day when they say who started that Trailride/Cowboy Blues they will mention da king in the South “Kang Jeter” “MuFassa.. Keep being Hard but Fair on us. Come Come.... Thanks so much for your time.

Jeter Jones

As of a couple of days ago, the concert was still on. And it was only announced a couple of weeks prior, so the chances of it going forward are good. The promotion does not carry a phone number.

Thank you for your time.
Gladys from Maryland

Daddy B. Nice replies:

There are links to buy mp3's and CD's on most of the pages (which number in the hundreds) of this website. So for Bishop Bullwinkle, for example, simply go to one of the indexes and find the product in his artist guide. Daddy B Nice also has a CD Store with links to product retailers that spans twenty years or more of southern soul music.

On Lady J's "Same Old Bullshit," Daddy B Nice has made an exception to his rule in the past and mailed out his personal copy, but I suspect that practice has "gotten around" and I can no longer afford to flaunt copyright law indefinitely even though the song is out of print. Sorry on that.

Finally, on the record pools, I must confess I don't know enough about them to offer an intelligent answer. If you sell, distribute or publicize southern soul music, contact the artists you like and ask them to send their music to you. They will be glad to do it.

With the demise of CD Baby, you can also find tons of southern soul music for sale at Blues Critic.
