Asie Payton - Just Do Me Right
This posthumous complement to Payton's only studio disc is something of a revelation. Not only does it confirm that he was a great blues and soul singer (just check out 'Back To The Bridge', with its 'In The Midnight Hour' riff, or the lazy groove of 'I Got A Friend', with its percolating wah-wah guitar line) but it shows the man could play funk too - '1000 Years' roars out of the speakers straight to the dancefloor, powered by some unexpected horns and 'Need My Help' has all the power of a latter-day Hendrix song. The result is a soaring testimony to someone who was an unsung great in his lifetime. Part of Fat Possum's 25th Anniversary reissue series. Originally released in 2006, now available on vinyl for the first time.
