Product Description

Product Description

• Doris Duke’s "I’m A Loser" is considered by many – including the late Dave Godin – to be the greatest deep soul album of all time. •To satisfy the demand from those who missed its previous (and very brief) Japanese CD reissue in the early 1990s, Kent is honoured to restore "I’m A Loser" to catalogue, as part of this retrospective of Doris’ two year collaboration with another R&B legend, Jerry Williams Jr aka Swamp Dogg. •As well as Doris’ two Swamp-produced albums, the CD also features the first reissue - in 36 years! – of both sides of Doris’ rare US Jay Boy single (originally released as Doris Willingham). •The sleeve notes include Swamp Dogg’s own reminiscences of the sessions that produced this monumentally soulful music.

Worth the wait? Unquestionably.
Sometimes, with music, distance lends enchantment, and fondly-remembered recordings prove a disappointment after long periods without being heard. I well remember buying the original vinyl LP version of 'I'm a Loser' on its first release around 1970. After playing it almost to death, I lent it to a girlfriend whom I was desperately trying to convert to soul music. I succeeded rather to well, and never saw the LP (or the girl) again.
And now, after all this time those wonderful people at Kent have reissued it on CD, along with a treasury of additional Doris Duke material. Not only does it not disappoint, it seems to have improved with age. Perhaps this is due to the scarcity of any real soul these days, but more likely it is because music like this, and the messages it contains, are ageless.
When it was first released, soul guru, the late Dave Godin, cited it as his favourite album (his original review in 'Blues and Soul magazine is included in the sleeve notes) .He could not have a finer memorial

This has to be the ultimate in real soul music.There hasn't been a single track I have skipped.The words to every song are phenomenal.If you like any form of soul music - you need to buy this - it's above anything else I have ever heard from any soul cd - and just from one artist - Doris Duke.The best soul cd I have ever heard.

I have only recently discovered Doris Duke...and this CD is great,
especially for me Tracks 1 and 11 but all the rest are unmissable.
I am glad I stumbled across this soul singer that has eluded me for years.

I have pre ordered 'Woman' a CD due out later this month by Doris on the strength of this CD.

Buy it, put it on in the car, perfect, what a great CD!

The late Dave Godin gave Doris Duke's 'I'm a Loser' album the above accolade. Dave was probably the most knowledgeable Englishman of this genre of music and his name adorns a number of compilation albums containing 'deep soul treasures' in the titles. He was at Dartford Grammar School with Mick Jagger and allegedly responsible for the Rolling Stones interest in American music.

I find I have to be in the mood to listen to soul music Tracks are so often about sadness and broken relationships. A look at the track titles gives a clue. He's Gone. I Can't Do Without You. I Don't Care Anymore. Divorce Decree. I Wish I Could Sleep. The amazing thing about Doris Duke's singing is that every word is sung with pain and truth. One suspects that some tracks may be autobiographical. I'm pleased to say that it is not all sadness and some tracks could be described as good soul workouts.

The musicianship is superb throughout and the sound quality stunning. What is even better is that this issue doesn't just contain the 'I'm a Loser' album but also 'A Legend in my Own Time' and 3 bonus tracks under Doris's original alias Doris Willingham. The 26 tracks and accompanying booklet are everything one expects from an Ace Records issue. The whole production has been done with loving care.

If you like soul music and haven't discovered Doris Duke this is unquestionably a 'must buy'.Anyone with a love of popular music is certain to find a huge amount to admire but don't expect all the songs to cheer you up!

I first heard Doris Duke when I heard "To The Other Woman" and my first reaction was WOW what a voice This IS Soul
I immediatly went out and bought "I'm A Loser" and fell in love with the LP from the start
In my opinion one of the most underated singers on the scene with one of the most soulful voices you could ever want to listen to
If you like your soul boardering on blues then Doris is someone you should listen to, she does for female bluesy Soul what Otis did for the men, and yes I have no qualms about using Doris Duke's name in the same sentence as the great man himself
