Billy Price: East End Avenue
Back to the Roots (Belgium), #57, October 2006
It' s been almost 6 years since we'd
put a brand new studio album of Billy
Price in our cd player. During that
period there were of course the double
live album "Sworn Testemony"
and the live dvd "Funky...Funky
Soul!!!" (entire BRBF concert 2003).
Billy produced, as expected, this cd.
And that he knows what he's doing is
a sure thing. But first he went looking
for song material. That was to be found
through the writer's duo, Jon and Sally
Tiven, not unknown people in the soul
world. (o.a. Wilson Pickett's It Harder
Now). They delivered the pleasing, yet
threatening "Push Me To The Limit"
(these horns!). Together with them he
wrote five other songs. Billy also persuaded
fellow-townsman and songwriter Mike
Sweeney who brought another six songs
to the studio. His "Only Two Lovers"
vagely sounds like Steely Dan and it
is, no doubt, my favourite song on this
cd, although I could not detect any
missers. "The Price I Paid For
Loving You" is a beautiful ballad,
while "Sweet Mistreatin' Love",
"She Left Me With These Blues"
and "Funky Like Dyke, pt 2"
(about Dyke & The Blazers), all in their
own right, are very funky. If "Soul
Sailing" would've been a single
in the mid sixties, it surely would've
been a million seller. This album bursts
of dynamic and inspired, adult soul
music! The whole band is playing strong
and tight and the horn section and the
backing vocals are a delight for your
ears. This is ultimate contagious soul,
sung and played by professionals with
the right feeling!
