JIMMY CHURCH - RIGHT ON TOP

Nashville's Jimmy Church released only five singles, but he has spent his entire life in music, and remains active to day leading a band that specializes in wedding entertainment.

The harmonies here have a sound that is quite reminiscent of the Impressions, but the rougher edge of the music and Jimmy's lead vocal make for a far more unique sound. More "on top of the beat" and faster than we usually hear in southern soul, and really great!

from 1966...

JIMMY CHURCH - RIGHT ON TOP


the b-side is a great ballad that we get to see Jimmy performing on "The !!! Beat".

This is so far the grittiest and most Soulful sounding Sound Stage 7 45 I have heard. I love this label and associate them for Country sounding Soul and R&B platters. Love this record, it cooks. One of the best Nashville soul records made not to be on Excello or Abet.
