James Hunter

Here's my latest music discovery....British R&B singer James Hunter. And here's a link to Hunter's MySpace music site.

Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson come to mind when I listen to Hunter's CD "People Gonna Talk". It's very retro-1960's. Wonderful listening!

I see that he has some previous releases, so I'll have to check them out as well.

Although Hunter has obviously been around for awhile, I hadn't heard of him until Bob Harris played his music on his Saturday night show on BBC Radio 2 in January. I ordered the CD through Amazon UK, and it just arrived this past week. And it's been in my car ever since.

And it's really great listening...so check it out if you're a fan of this type of smooth R&B.

Good luck with your new addition, Janet! I'm not as informed about music as you are, but I do enjoy my iTunes. I have become quite the iTunatic. :)

I'm liking the blog. I have just got the James Hunter album, though I've had a few tracks for some time. You're right - he's great! My band (Black River Blues) has just recorded "No Smoke Without Fire" on our new "Live At Blyth" CD - and we got some radio play with it at the weekend on BBC Radio Newcastle. Sometime this week I'll have it uploaded to our website: www.blackriverblues.co.uk.

I have a blog too:
