Back To The Basics – The Chips Moman Songbook – v/a cd
€ 17,90 incl. btw
In de Ace ‘songwriter series’ aandacht voor de liedjesschrijver Chips Moman. Enorm belangrijke man in de muziekgeschiedenis van Memphis, o.a. als studio eigenaar en producer (Elvis!) Maar liedjes schrijven, dat kon ie ook. Hij is o.a. medecomponist van Dark End of the Street, Do Right Woman, Do Right Man en Luckenbach, Texas, om maar eens een paar te noemen. Kortom, welkom deeltje in deze Ace reeks. ‘Chips wore many professional hats during his almost 50-year career. Musician, label-owner, producer and studio owner are other areas at which he excelled. Here in “Back To The Basics” there are many notable examples of him wearing several of those hats simultaneously. However, it’s his songs that this compilation highlights. If Chips had only co-authored ‘Dark End Of The Street’, it would be enough to guarantee him songwriter immortality. But as you will hear in a collection that includes tracks by some of the most famous names in soul, pop and country music, it’s far from being the only classic song in his catalogue.’ Voor de tracklisting naar de Ace site.
