Dan Penn & Bobby Purify: The Inside Track (CD)

(Last Music Company) 14 tracks, gatefold sleeve, digifile with 16 page booklet

The Inside Track on Bobby Purify traces the journey of one of Dan Penn's recording projects from its original conception to final commercial release, offering listeners a unique behind-the-scenes look at the entire process of songwriting and production from Dan's side of the desk.  The CD package includes a sixteen-page booklet with photos and interviews with Dan about the recording process.

Inspired by Solomon Burke's profound rendition of Don't Give Up On Me in 2002, Dan Penn reunited with his co-writers of the Grammy-winning song for a new project.  He instinctively knew the team had more great songs in the same vein just waiting to be unearthed, but to dig them up, they needed to take some time to go south and write ... and eat just as well.  The demos he recorded during these songwriting sessions with collaborators Carson Whitsett and Bucky Lindsey are a joy to behold, showcasing Dan's voice at its absolute, soulful best.  Normally these private tapes would not be released, but when heard alongside the final versions he produced with Bobby Purify, Dan Penn's vision as a producer becomes clear.  Dan had identified Bobby as the ideal singer for this next production after getting to know him again after a break of some twenty years.  At home in his Nashville studio in 2004, Penn recorded ten new tracks based on the demos, which Jerry Wexler described as "Bobby Purify's glorious, God-given voice".  Dan called on other Southern soul session stars like Carson Whitsett, Spooner Oldham, Reggie Young, Jimmie Johnson, David Hood and Wayne Jackson to create the perfect foundation for Bobby Purify's 2005 album Better To Have It.  Bobby had gone completely blind in Nashville a few years before these recordings and unfortunately didn't have the confidence to tour with this great studio band as planned. As a result, the album was deleted and unavailable until this re-release.  The twenty tracks on this release consist of the ten original demo versions of the songs sung by Dan Penn, followed by the same ten that appeared on Bobby Purify's original album.

Dan Penn

Dan Penn first came to the fore as the 14-year-old writer of `Is A Bluebird Blue?', a substantial hit for Conway Twitty in 1960. In the late Fifties, he formed a group, Dan Penn and the Pallbearers — adopting their name after buying a hearse as a bandwagon — with David Briggs (piano), Norbert Put-nam (bass), Jerry Carrigan (drums).

They made several un-successful records, playing local Alabama clubs and bars, before Rick Hall hired them as a session band for his new Fame studio, where Penn began a lengthy and fruitful part-. nership with another Fame sessioneer, Lyndon 'Spooner' Oldham. As a songwriting partnership, Penn and Oldham produced several hundred songs, some used by artists from Hall's own Fame label, some artists from other labels doing individual sessions at the studio, and some passed on to artists in other local studios since Penn and Oldham were not contracted to Fame as writers.

Penn also wrote with other renowned sessioneers, most notably with Chips Moman, which team was responsible for `Do Right Woman — Do Right Man', a million-seller for Aretha Franklin and the magnificent doomy, country-soul ballad 'Dark End Of The Street', recorded by James Carr, Roy Hamilton and numer-ous others. As a producer Penn worked with the Box Tops amongst others. He continued his partnership with Spooner Oldham, however, and they went on to form their own in-dependent production company, working from Lynn-Lou Studios. He has recorded in his own right for MGM, Earth, Fame, Atlantic and Happy Tiger.
