Joe Haywood - Warm and Tender Soul

Back when I put my Haywood compilation together, this disc did not exist. It claims to be complete and does indeed have the one track that I knew that I was missing, but it omits the 2 unissued tracks that Kent unearthed so I have included those to make it complete.

"Joe Haywood was a Bad-Ass! In several different compilations and a few 45's, I had become limitedly aware of the singer Joe Haywood, but only recently did I focus on building something in the way of a compilation. Without the fine work of Red Kelly's soul detectives, this idea would have likely been a still birth. Between Red, Larry Grogan and Sir Shambling, I picked up the information necessary to start digging for as many of the tracks as I could find (1 more 45 is in transit that will supply a missing track and get us to 21 but I couldn't wait any longer). It is possible that there are multiple versions of a few tracks, but so far they have all been licensed re-issues of the same recording." earlier write up

By far the best biographical info is here:

Soul Detectives Joe Haywood 1
Soul Detectives Joe Haywood 2

Thanks KC. Have not heard him before but sounds like it will be good.

Fantastic job KC. I've got Let's Make it on the Sehorn's Soul Farm comp which always puzzled me cos great as it is, there's no hint of NO on the track. But it's New York and now it makes sense. In Your Heart... what a killer. Magnificent.

A new and welcome discovery for me as well. It's listening to artists like Haywood that make Chitlin's my favorite on-line juke joint. Of course, I am always left asking myself why didn't I previously know about these artists?
