Bahamas FUNK!!!Jay Mitchell - "Spirits of Fire Goom Rock" on Freeport SoundsI reviewed "Your Mama and Your Papa Again" from Bahamian singer/keyboardist Jay Mitchell, and today I'm following with this one. Mitchell is widely acknowledged (at least among those of us lucky enough to have heard him) as one of the greatest talents to come out of the chain of small islands located not far off the coast of Florida. I can't find a release date for this LP, but it sounds very similar to 1974's "Your Mama and Your Papa Again" and I'm guessing it may have preceded that one by a year or two. This is another gritty set of hard edged soul and funk, with heavy doses of the native goombay rhythms, a tight grooving band, and powerhouse vocals from Mitchell. Mostly composed of originals, the album also features a few well picked cover tunes, and Mitchell's versions can easily stand toe to toe with any of the originals. His rendition of Bill Withers' "Ain't No Sunshine" is riddled with angst, and when he takes on ballad "The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face", originally made famous by songbird Roberta Flack, he wrings every drop of emotion from the lyrics. "Do Your Thing" written by Isaac Hayes has seen a lot of remakes, but Mitchell and his band rip through the tune in their own style, complete with piercing fuzz guitar, leaving it sounding totally fresh. The original compositions here lean towards the goombay rhythms, but are a far cry from "traditional", as the band continues to pour on the soul and funk, creating an irresistible amalgam of styles. Mitchell's vocals are particularly impassioned on this LP, and every time I take a listen to it, I find myself wondering yet again why he isn't more well known. This guy is hot shit.
Anyone have a copy of "The Soul of Jay Mitchell" or a digital file??? Please help me!!!
Someone should reissue them for sure. Especially "Impartiality" which is impossible to find, and even when you find it it'll cost you $500+.
Yeah you're right about the guy being hot-shit, definitely a one of a kind. I'd just wish more near mint copies of his albums turn up. Wanna hear his stuff without the sound that old beat-up records bring with them, if you know what I mean.
