billy butler – right track (okeh mono lp, 1966) album

Storming Chicago soul album with an impressive pedigree: Billy Butler is Jerry Butler‘s brother, and Jerry was one of the Impressions alongside Curtis Mayfield and Fred Cash. Good for Billy… and for us, since half the album was written by Curtis Mayfield. Production and arranging was handled by Carl Windy City Davis, and the result is a Chicago soul album that’s close to perfect.

Ten songs in a little over 22 minutes, Billy Butler singing his heart out, good songs and driving arrangements – this is Soul Heaven.
