Joe Louis Walker: Preacher and the President

Ed Kopp By

Sign in to view read count
Joe Louis Walker is one of the most soulful cats in music, blues or otherwise. A great guitarist, Walker also sings with tremendous passion on this release, the San Francisco native's finest collection of songs. It combines blues with soul, funk, and a hint of jazz, and it features jaunty horns and the justifiably famous Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section. Producer Steve Cropper helps Joe Louis forge a sound that compares favorably with classic soul purveyors Otis Redding and Sam and Dave. Best cuts include the funky "Y&T," the Redding-like ballad "Pride of a Fool," and the great soul rave-up "Uhh!" Preacher and the President should draw a lot of attention to Mr. Walker.

Title: Preacher and the President | Year Released: 1999 | Record Label: Verve Music Group
