BABY LLOYD - THERE'S SOMETHING ON YOUR MIND


Baby Lloyd (Lloyd Eugene Stallworth) was one of James Brown's backing singers and only released two singles on his own- this one was produced by boss James Brown.

While JB was entering his birth-of-funk high intensity period in '65, this productions hearkens back to earlier JB ballad work but with a very dreamy, 3:00 AM recording session quality thanks to the yearning vocals of Baby Lloyd. I really dig the understated lilt to this record.

from 1965...

Great Bass and Organ work. I think it would have been a stronger tune without the blaring horn sections. They seemed out of place for this song. But that is a minor caveat. Overall a very enjoyable listen. Thank You!

The music in the background is almost identical to Teardrops On Your Letter by Hank Ballard & The
Midnighters.
