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 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:

I have a blog too: - mainly about music, guitars, coffee and music!
