Charles Brimmer’s ‘Your So Called Friends’ is a straight burner from one of the greatest under-the-radar New Orleans soul men.

It dropped way back in 1970 on the Hep’ Me label with Senator Nolan Jones as the producer. If you want to explore the world of so-called ‘deep soul’ please let this cut be your launch pad. It doesn’t get any finer.

Charles Brimmer was born October 10, 1948 in the 9th Ward of New Orleans, and attended St Augustine high.

He destroyed Ponderosa Stomp a few years back and we’d beg borrow or steal to see him perform just one more time.
