Southern soul revived with passion
Now 63, Charles Walker was a little-known participant in the ’60s Southern soul scene, which he here recreates in an album recently recorded in Nashville. The aim is to revive the gutsy sound of Muscle Shoals as a backdrop for Walker’s deep soul vocals. Cut and mixed in little over a week, it’s a testament to the enduring values of a musical style getting on for 40 years gone by. Lovers of Southern soul take note.
