TIMOTHY MCNEALY :: EASY, EASY, EASY
I cant stop playing this!
“Until Brooklyn’s Truth and Soul label recently reissued Timothy McNealy’s “I’m So Glad That You’re Mine,” most of what anyone knew of this Dallas funk and soul veteran was as an instrumentalist. In the late ’60s, the keyboardist had been a member of Bobby Patterson’s Mustangs band, but he broke out solo in 1970 and formed the Shawn label. His output on Shawn was meager, but when funk collectors discovered singles such as “Sagittarius Black” and “K.C. Stomp,” they clamored for one of the scarce original copies. Strangely, though, the one single to actually feature McNealy’s vocals would go relatively ignored. In 1972, he released a single with a cover of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” on one side and this remarkable version of Al Green’s “I’m So Glad That You’re Mine” on the flip.”
This one is a sleep and personal favorite!
