Don Adams - Watts Happening (1969)




"..An incredible soul album, with equally incredible roots – sung by Scottish-born singer Don Adams, but recorded in the Munich scene of the late 60s! Despite that overseas origin, though, the record's a sock-solid soul effort all the way through – steeped in modes borrowed from Memphis, but carried off with a slightly different feel, thanks to the presence of a fair bit of jazz musicians on the date! Adams' voice is tremendous – a gritty, right on the money soul sound – completely color blind, and beautifully suited to the funky backings in the set. And almost best of all, the songs are mostly original or obscure numbers – not the sort of re-hashed hits that usually came out on Euro soul sides of the 60s – but killer new tracks that are steeped in a great sense of sadness and loss...." ~ (Electric Looser)
