James Hunter reDebuts

(PR) The 1996 debut album by James Hunter, whose current album People Gonna Talk has taught 21st century audiences the joys of early American soul music and rhythm & blues, will receive a U.S. release date August 29 on Hep Cat Records (through Hep Cat Distribution) � only 10 years late. The album was originally released on Ace Records in the U.K.

Believe What I Say will not disappoint those who find themselves under the spell of People Gonna Talk. Even back in �96, Hunter�s Sam Cooke- and Jackie Wilson-influenced vocals and the band�s fat horn-driven rhythm & blues nuances were keenly developed. The album contains nine Hunter originals, plus two Bobby �Blue� Bland songs (�Turn On Your Love Light� and �Ain�t Nothing You Can Do,� both with backing vocals from Van Morrison) and one by Ray Charles (�Hallelujah I Love Her So�).

In addition to the two vocals contributions from Morrison, Hunter was also joined by the late Doris Troy on his original song �Hear Me Calling.� Troy was best known for her own hit �Just One Look,� as well as her backing vocals on the Rolling Stones� �You Can�t Always Get What You Want,� plus her own singles on the Beatles� Apple Records.
