Dan Penn: Unheard Demos (LP, colored Vinyl)

(The Last Music Company) 10 tracks, colored Vinyl in green

As a songwriter, Dan Penn ranks highly as an elder statesman of the classic southern soul genre and needs no further introduction to anyone who digs the real stuff.  As a solo performer, his rare concert appearances are rapturously welcomed by fans eager to hear his classic repertoire in its raw form, performed by its creator.  These ten demo recordings provide a unique look behind the curtain at some fine examples of the creative process of songwriting featuring Dan’s soulful voice at its best. They were recorded in 2004 immediately after the sessions that produced Don’t Give Up On Me as the title track for Solomon Burke’s comeback album. This is genuine southern soul music and collectors will really appreciate this being on vinyl.  None of the material on this release has ever been heard by the public or made available previously in any format.  These Dan Penn demos were the blueprint for an album he later produced by singer Bobby Purify with a stellar cast of Muscle Shoals session men that was released in 2005.  That record was deleted soon after release when “Bobby” reverting to his own name Ben Moore, joined the Blind Boys of Alabama and continued performing with them until his death in May 2022.

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.
