Jimmey “Soul” Clark – (I’ll Be Your Champion) I’ll Be Your Winner3rd August 2022 · 1960s, 1967, Music, Soul
When I think of 1967 I think of psychedelia, hippies, flower power, LSD. This record came out that year – the Summer of Love – but it’s nothing like that.
Because while that was going in in San Francisco, music like this was coming out of Detroit.
It’s not a Motown number, it’s from Popcorn Wylie’s competing SoulHawk stable.
Written by Wylie and his lyrical partner Tony Hester, it’s a Northern Soul classic.
Clark cut several more of those – (Come On And Be My) Sweeet Darlin’, If I Only Knew Then (What I Know Now) and Tell Her.
