OV Wright is definitely an undernoticed, underrated star of the soul genre.
Wright is distinctive in his "yearning" quality. On "You're Gonna Make Me Cry" he is broken by a turning point with his girl, yet, at the end he seems resolved to go on without her if he must. Most of these songs are about some emotional upheaval, and have interesting remarks about its consequences. The Gospel message is usually not too far off, as the singer seems always deeply concerned with his moral witness.
One real "oddball" here is the "Monkey Dog. So get out on the floor and get with it Haven't gotten yet I know about O. Wright only because Pittsburgh's own Billy Price do yourself a favour and look up Billy Price on amazonthe best not-universally-famous rhythm and blues singer in America over the last few decades, has sung his praises in interviews and fashioned his own style and music preferences after him. I figured I'd go to the source and find out for myself. I wasn't disappointed.
This is great stuff. This is the music that has made America great. A great artist! Soul personified. The pure sound of Southern Soul that helped people of Southern origns feel good about life.
The sounds of O. Wright brings the pure music back. He used a talent given by God and used it in several genres. The soul part is church and the story telling deals with life then and now. The arrangements are stupendous and the background vocals are breath taking.
In a time of racial seperation white female voices backed a black soul singer. Take a listen and you will be hooked. Wonderfully great talent! Should be more well known. Not a bad track on here. Good for the price!!!! See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. Record Research. London: Guinness World Records Limited.
