What it is.

Soultreats is Soulville U-A´s music blog. It´s updated several times a week with a new soulful record. It is our chance to spotlight the artists and record labels that made the music but rarely the charts.
It´s a celebration!

The legacy.
If you are, know or have any information about the artists, labels or musicians etc. that are mentioned in these pages, please share it with us by sending an email to:

Do not use the comment button for this since there is no way for me, for now, to know which additions have been commented on. Help us be as detailed as we possibly can in our description of this wonderful music.

Thanks in advance.



Rudy Mockabee - Cheer Up (Daddy´s Coming Home) - Atco

60s SoulPosted by Martin Wed, May 05, 2010 09:30:43

I originally bought this for the other side "Sweet Thing" which is a decent enough dancer, but as the years have gone by I have found myself playing this wonderful deep soul cut more & more. Rudy Mockabee is still going strong after some 40 years in the business. He started singing, like so many of his peers, in gospel groups at an early age and then moved on to secular music. After a short stint as a member of The Drifters, Mockabee had his first solo record, today´s addition, released in 1969. One more 45 followed the year after, also on Atco records called "Piece Of My Heart" / "Think About It". After that it seems like Mockabee´s recording days were over but he has continued performing to present day, especially in and around his native Huntsville Ala. area. Enjoy!
