Lewis Clark - I Need You Baby - Brent

60s SoulPosted by Martin Wed, May 05, 2010 09:53:36

Hailed by some as Tampa´s premier soul singer, Lewis Clark started singing at just seven years of age. His first tracks "Come With Me" / "If You Ever Leave Me" were cut by himself when he was just 17 and pressed in 200 copies which he sold to friends and family. After that Clark got a recording deal with the Tigertown label which released three singles on him, all in 1966. One of these, "I Need Your Lovin´ So Bad" has long been a cherished item on U.K.´s northern soul scene. After his stint with Tigertown, Clark moved to Brent records where he had his biggest hit with "Dog (Ain´t A Man´s Best Friend" in 1967 and it is the B-side to this release which we feature today. He had further releases on other small indie labels, Fuller, Ultimate & Red Ram records throughout the late 1960s and early 70s but the hits never materialised.
Seemingly a talented writer Lewis Clark wrote most of his own material, and by listening to his recordings, we can tell that he was an extraordinary singer. Sadly Lewis Clark suffered from a severe stroke in 1999 which he never fully recovered from. Enjoy!
