Hi all,

The song for this week is Soul Searching from GIOMY.  It is a good song.  This is the album Brian was talking about during the Larry King interview.

Mixed feeling about this song, Mary - It's not bad, and it's Carl's last vocal put to Brian's music...but Carl didn't like it much either.  I guess I'm tainted about this.
(I recall reading this was "mostly" an Andy Paley composition - whosever, not my favorite).

Generally, I'm not a huge fan of the GIOMH album.  But, Soul Searchin is definitely a highlight.  

While I generally like Brian's modern voice, it is nice to have another voice on the album (here Carl, and Al & Blondie were welcome additions to the NPP record).

I associate the excellent song 'Soul Searchin' with the Lost Wilson/Paley tapes, which plays like a real/cohesive/wonderful, much better album than GIOMH (even though Brian says he regrets not finishing things such as mixing 'Proud Mary', etc.).  Carl was not always right, but in fact, wrong not to fully appreciate this song (as Solomon Burke did).
