the early pop stuff definitely seems like an anomaly in retrospect. and, as far as what he arrived at in the 70s, i really don't know where that style came from - think i mentioned elsewhere that he christened himself a reverend for a reason; that was his preacher voice. that's the only way i can make sense of it because it is so singular.

sidenote: not only is the early pop stuff on spotify under "gene mcdaniels", so is the mid-70s quiet storm(-ish) full length natural juices. fairly rare in the original, what a treat to have it so readily listenable. also the headless heroes era non-lp single "tell me mr. president" is on there under "eugene" - check it out, very righteous.

xp Stevo, it's funny because it's "A Hundred Pounds of Clay" that popped into my head this morning and which prompted me to go looking for videos on Youtube. that one's pretty tame.

but on "tower of strength" you can hear him kind of growl and shout in a way that is reminiscent of the Atlantic records. he's clearly hamming it up here, but i kinda like it. you can hear he's having fun.
