Clifford Curry - Ain´t No Danger - Elf

60s SoulPosted by Martin Thu, May 20, 2010 19:06:32

The fourth installment in Soultreats! special northern Soul week, to celebrate our upcoming club night this Friday (21/5) with guest DJ Andreas Dienel.

Not to be confused with his namesakes that sang in The Notations or Sly, Slick & The Wicked, our Clifford Curry today hails from Knoxwille TN and has managed to sustain a career in music for almost fifty years. Beginning back in the 50s Curry was a member of a few doo-wop styled groups, The Five Pennies, Hollyhocks & The Contenders. He eventually branched out and got himself a recording deal as a solo act with Excello records which released two 45s on him in 1963-64. Curry´s biggest hit came a few years later in 1967 when his "She Shot A Hole In My Soul" came out on Elf records, the single did very well and nearly charted on the Top 40 chart. Today´s addition came out as a B-side to his 1968 single "I Can´t Get A Hold of Myself", also on the Elf label which released some nine singles on him. What is interesting to note is that Curry has long been a favourite artist on the "Beach" scene in the U.S., a similar phenomena to the Northern Soul scene in the U.K. but with a slightly different preference in music and they would in fact problably go for the other side on this one. But not I. Enjoy!

"Ain´t No Danger"
