Eddy Senay --Ain't No Sunshine / Delgado (Repost from 12/3/10)



How about making this Saturday a bit funky?

Eddy Senay is another artist whose talent has been lurking neglected and under-rated for whatever unintelligible reason way too long.

I only found about Eddy Senay a few days ago. And what can I say? I love his slow, easy-going style.
Eddy Senay had two albums released for Sussex: Hot Thang in 1972 and Step By Step in 1973. Both albums were re-released on one CD  by Vampi Soul in 2006 titled Eddy Senay, Soul Preachin'. I definitely recommend both to anyone who loves to listen to clean and clear melodic instrumentals with a moderate psychedelic slant.

His career at Sussex was somewhat hindered by his co-existence with Dennis Coffey who had already left his mark on the music scene since the early 60's, most notably as a member of the Funk Bros. Studio Band. 

Ain't No Sunshine is from Hot Thang and Delgado from his second album Step By Step.
