An obscure soul singer, who brings his own style to soul classics.
A heck of a great little soul session – by a singer we never heard from again! Doug Haynes hailed from the New York scene of the early 70s, and managed to cut this one album for Brunswick before dropping out of sight – an excellent little record that mixes together southern soul vocals with some sweeter arrangements, in a manner that’s got a really unique feel!
There’s a few great funky numbers on the set, and even the mellower tracks come across well – thanks to Doug’s unusual spiritual-tinged vocals. A number of the tracks on the set are remakes of other soul hits, but they’re done here in some really unusual versions, and take on a new life of their own in Doug’s hands!
