JOE SOUTH (314)

So the Seeds are Growing / A Look Inside (2-for-1) (RVCD-314)

Raven presents for the first time ever on CD two outstanding albums by legendary Grammy winning singer / songwriter / sessionman JOE SOUTH on this great value 2-for-1 release. So the Seeds are Growing (1971) and A Look Inside (1972), the fifth and sixth albums South recorded for Capitol Records, bring his solo career into sharp focus and showcase his unique talents. During the 1960s South made a name for himself as a sessionman for Simon & Garfunkel, Aretha Franklin and Bob Dylan and influential songwriter of hits for Billy Joe Royal (‘Down in the Boondocks’), Deep Purple (‘Hush’), Lynn Anderson (‘Rose Garden’), Johnny Rivers (‘These are Not My People’) etc. This CD follows Raven’s previous 2-for-1 releases of Introspect / Don’t It Make You Want To Go Home? (RVCD-175) and Games People Play / Joe South (RVCD-228) plus the essential Anthology 1968-1975 (RVCD-94).

South continued to mine his electrifying blend of country, soul, swamp rock and meaningful lyrics on these two rollicking and passionate albums. His song writing remained of a high standard, as ‘So the Seeds are Growing’, ‘Revolution of Love’, ‘Motherless Children’, ‘It Hurts Me Too’, ‘Real Thing’ and ‘I’m a Star’ so brilliantly emphasize. With four bonus tracks INCLUDING ‘OPRAH CRIED’, JOE’S FIRST NEW STUDIO RECORDING IN 35 YEARS, plus 3 non-LP singles. Superb quality audio, detailed notes and color booklet make this excellent release is a must for fans of sophisticated Southern country-soul and pop-rock.
