Liner Note Author: Alec Palao. Recording information: Fame Studios, Muscle Shoals Penn is less widely acclaimed as a great soul singer, largely because so few people have heard his work; while Guralnick and other writers have spoken rhapsodically of the publishing demos Penn cut in the '60s, Penn put out only four obscure singles prior to making his misbegotten debut album inand his body of recorded work remains elusive. Thankfully, Ace Records has finally made it possible for fans to hear the recordings that so impressed Guralnick; The Fame Recordings includes 24 numbers Penn recorded at Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama between andall but one of which has never before been released.
While a few of these songs would be major hits for other artists, nearly all of them sound like winners, and unlike most songwriters demo-ing their material, Penn's performances are raw, passionate, full-bodied, and soulful; he was a white kid from the deep south in love with the sound of Ray Charles and Bobby "Blue" Bland, and on the best cuts here, he goes past conjuring an approximation of their sound, revealing a voice and style all his own that suggests he influenced the singers who would cut these songs almost as much as they influenced him.
While Penn could mimic other artists -- "I'm Living Good" is an uncanny Sam Cooke lift, and "Take a Good Look" finds Penn channeling Otis Redding -- he puts in enough force and sheer belief to make these performances his own no matter how well you may already know these songs, and with a number of legendary session men backing him up, these recordings are remarkably accomplished, slightly rough but full of the sound of musicians thrilled by the act of creation.
And one can hear more than a bit of what Penn taught Alex Chilton when he produced the Box Tops' original string of hits, transforming Chilton's British Invasion instincts into some of the most soulful pop of the '60s.

Often, when you're running, you want to forget about what you're doing completely. Let's face it, a lot of the time, running sucks. It's painful, sweaty, and tiring, which is why you need to feel like you've been transported to another world while doing it. Toro y Moi's latest album Outer Peace does just that. These pumped-up bops sort of feel like they're taking place inside of a spaceship, and its synth sound harkens back Keep On Running - Deadline (10) - Take A Good Look (CD some of those '80s workout tunes that you can't help but run Keep On Running - Deadline (10) - Take A Good Look (CD.
Noname might have some of the best wordplay in rap right now and I reckon that will help out with your running routine. Although this artist is inspired by the sleepier sounds of musicians like Chance the Rapperher latest album, Room 25is designed to wake you up. If you can catch up with Noname's flow, you'll be running faster than a cheetah. Her words come fast and hard, and they'll make you want to keep up the pace.
The album title Keep On Running - Deadline (10) - Take A Good Look (CD is motivation enough, Keep On Running - Deadline (10) - Take A Good Look (CD. Mitski invites you to Be The Cowboyand by that she means you should be the person you always wanted to be right now. Does that mean you're a healthy person that loves running? This album is an excellent soundtrack to that. Its blustering opener "Geyser" sets the album up with a volcanic amount of energy, which is maintained across these delectable and stirring indie-pop tracks.
Palpably inspired by Michael Jackson and old-school funk, this album is a fresh and deliberately femme take on some of the classic songs that play at the gym.
