Arthur Lee "Pep" Brown was born in Macon, GA and has stayed through to his southern roots throughout his musical career. This wonderful double-sider from 1971 is no exception. Owing much to stars like Al Green (who wrote and recorded this in his own right) and Otis Redding in his style, Brown has a distinctive enough voice to be recognized worldwide by fans as a fine deep soul singer. Sadly though he only got the chance to showcase himself on a few recordings, two for the Lava label and another two for Polydor records. He did cut a couple of tracks on the Walden label in the eighties (named after his longtime associate in music Alan Walden), but I haven´t heard any of that material.
