While Huey Lewis & The News became known in the ‘80s as a slick pop-rock machine with albums such as Sports and Fore!, at its heart the group loved classic soul music and mastered a groove far more funky than their hits suggested. This collection of mostly obscure R&B tunes shows the group hanging out and having fun. Stax Records was the pre-eminent soul label in Memphis and “Soulsville” was the neighborhood where the legendary studio resided. Years later, all that’s left are the memories and Lewis sounds determined to bring those memories to life for people who might otherwise not learn about them. (Lewis also covers a good deal of Atlantic Records sides as well). Lewis will never top Solomon Burke with “Got to Get You Off My Mind” or “Cry to Me,” but the band do an admirable job keeping a tough interpretation together. “Don’t Let the Green Grass Fool You” lays back more than expected. “Respect Yourself” lets the News show off just how behind the groove they can get. It’s an unexpected move and one that will hopefully inspire people to rediscover classic R&B.
An awesome album by an awesome band!
I have been patiently awaiting this album since August ever since Huey announced it in concert. I have to admit I was not looking forward to a tribute album, but the songs blew me away. The horn section, the harmonies, the guitar- they were perfect. The band truly caught the essence of the Stax era. Make sure and check out the bonus tracks as well. They are amazing!
Very nice album
Everything Huey Lewis does , he does very well. Taking these old songs and putting his take on them can be risky, but he pulled it off with flying colors. Great album!How can you go wrong with anything this band puts out.Now just dont make us wait another 10 yrs for another album Huey.
Huey Lewis and his band still knows how to make great records even though the youth of today probably don't know anything about him or the popularity he enjoyed in the 1980's. Soulsville is a great record for us folks that appreciate musicianship and artists with actual talent. I say this as my 18 year old daughter would rather listen to Hiphop, Lady Gaga or bands like Paramore. Most current music today is awful and come from pathetic game shows like American Idol. How sad...but anyway, for those of you that may not know about it, but enjoy Soulsville, you should try and find a copy of the 1994 CD "Four Chords & Several Years Ago" That is also a great CD where Huey Lewis & the News pay homage to R&B covers. Unfortunately as of today (November 7, 2010) that CD is not available here on iTunes. My guess is probably just too many licensing problems. It always comes down to that when trying to find certain music here on iTunes.
