Porter, David - Sweat & Love - Used LP
VG: some wear to both vinyl and sleeve, some crackle between songs; sleeve has ugly drill hole in bottom left corner.
David Porter: Under appreciated living legend from the world of North American music...born and raised at the center of it all in Memphis, staying in his hometown to become songwriting partner of Isaac Hayes in the 1960s, house composers for Stax, they penned most of Sam & Dave's hits, “Soul Man" and "Hold On! I'm Coming, Porter’s name ending up on the credits of hundreds of songs. While his songs traveled the world, he remains dedicated to his hometown, founding the Memphis-based Consortium MMT, a nonprofit organization seeking to develop the music industry in Memphis. Porter has a street named after him in Memphis and was awarded the Governor's Arts Award for his achievements including founding The Consortium MMT venture. Even fans aren’t always aware that he recorded his own albums at Stax, like this one just added to greennoiserecords.com, not surprisingly an enjoyable set, of course focusing on the many sides of falling hard, falling in and falling out, slow-burning waterbed soul and mid-tempo funky numbers, focused on originals by Porter and Ronnie Williams, featuring the Memphis Horns and a group of musicians called Ebony Web (who released at least one single on Hi in 1972), all enjoyable with several highlights.
