Doris Allen: A Shell of a Woman - The Legendary Playground Sessions

Doris Allen is a powerhouse soul from singer who made a bit of a splash in the late ‘60s southern soul scene with duet partner Big John Hamilton, but whose own work from that time and a couple decades later have been under acknowledged in the digital era until now. The first half of this compilation features her wonderful late-‘60s work. Produced by Finley Duncan at Duncan's Playground Studios, it features a couple of the Hamilton duets, but it's Doris' show. She can both shout out soulfully to the heavens and reign it in for more delicate numbers, and the often gritty soul backing of drums, organ and horns are of the finest caliber. The second half of the set jumps to the mid-‘80s, and the cleaner, smoother sounds of that era. This later work was still produced by Duncan and Allen's voice as impeccable as earlier. Titles include ‘A Shell of a Woman’, ‘Kiss Yourself For Me’, ‘Let a Little Love In’, ‘Hanging Heavy In My Mind’, ‘A Place in My Heart’, ‘Them Changes’, ‘Bright Star’, ‘Candy from a Baby', ‘Treat Me Like a Woman’, ‘Full Time Fool’, ‘Night Time Is the Right Time’ and more, plus 9 previously unreleased tracks, including ‘Clean Up Woman’, ‘Birmingham Jail’, ‘Ashes Won't Burn’ and more. 23 tracks in all! http://www.dustygroove.com/
