James Holvay - Sweet Soul Song - New Release Review

 I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Sweet Soul Song, from James Holvay and it is sweet! Opening with Working On It, James Holvay conjures up the prime 60's soul sound with a snappy beat and super rhythm guitar. With Les Falconer on drums, James Manning on bass, Stu Pearlman on keys and Holvay on guitar and lead vocal and backed by Cliff Curtis, Ron Douglas and Les Falconer on backing vocals. Very nice. Holvay shines on On Still The Fool, with distinct influences of Curtis Mayfield being felt with classic vocal phrasing, reverb saturated guitar work, strings and smooth backing vocals. Wrapping the release is Talkin' About, with an Impressions feel. Light instrumentation, handclaps and horns with excellent vocal blending and swaying rhythm spells perfection on the closer on this really cool release.
