Salem Soul Song

Sorry 'bout That

I Am A Walrus

The sound is upbeat and happy for most of the record. The version of The Beatles I Am The Walrus is nice as it brings the tempo down for a bit.

Mel Brown - Big Foot Country Girl

Another Mel Brown record for your asses. This one from 1973, might be his last, I don't know. This, like all other Mel B records I own, was released on Impulse.

Need Love

Stinging Bea

Musically, it's what you usually get from a Mel Brown album, meaning a bluesy, funky and soulful mix, with a very down-home kind of sound.
  1. Need Love
  2. Home Folks
  3. Red Cross Store
  4. Little Girl, Don't You Know
  5. Big Foot Country Girl
  6. Goin' Down Slow
  7. Stinging Bea
