* Back in 70s Oakland, California, streetwise hipster William Darondo Pulliam was a funky singer-songwriter who could also swing the sweetest soul west of Al Green. His handful of idiosyncratic 45 releases are crowned by the heartbreaking sound of his 1973 local hit `Didn't I', on the collectable Music City label.
* The hot news in funk and 70s soul circles has been the recent discovery of Darondo's Music City master tapes, throwing up two albums worth of raunchy Bay Area funk and idiosyncratic soul balladry. "Listen To My Song - The Music City Sessions" collects this unprecedented goldmine of grooves, and shows off Darondo in his streetwise prime.
* Together with his musical collaborator Al Tanner, Darondo was an excellent songwriter with a unique style and the contents of this outstanding anthology, recorded between 1972 and 1974, are bound to please collectors and general funk and soul fans alike.
* Compilation and notes by Alec Palao.
* Also available on limited vinyl LP release.
