5.0 out of 5 stars At last, REAL Soul Sessions!, 4 April 2005
This review is from: I'm a Loser: the Swamp Dogg Sessions and More (Audio CD)
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
