Produktinformationen "Fritts, Donnie - Oh My Goodness (LP)"
Donnie Fritts ist ein bekannter Amerikanischer Session-Musiker und Songwriter. Neben seinen Solo-Arbeiten ist er seit über 20 Jahren Keyboarder in Kris Kristoffersons Band. Seine früheren Platten sind eher von Funk geprägt. Nun geht es ihm um eher zeitloses Country-eskes Songwriting, das durch seine charakteristische Stimme, Fender Rhodes und dezente orchestrale Begleitung unterstützt wird.



OH MY GOODNESS IS DONNIE FRITTS' MOST POLISHED RECORD TO DATE, AN ELEVATED AND SLIGHT DEPARTURE FROM THE FUNKY MUSCLE SHOALS SOUND HE'S KNOWN FOR, BUT WITH EVERY BIT THE POWERHOUSE SONGWRITING THAT MADE THE WORLD TAKE NOTICE DECADES AGO. I didn't want to do just another funk album, Donnie says. I wanted to do songs I really love and songs I never got to cut before. People don't make records with 71 year-old guys, he says, his humility always sitting shotgun by his talent. John Paul White, formerly of the Grammy winning duo The Civil Wars and presently co-founder of Single Lock Records and owner of Sun Drop Studios in Florence, Ala., befriended Donnie in 2013 when he asked him to play at the Muscle Shoals documentary premiere in Florence. Later, John Paul insisted the two cut an album. What began as a minimalist work - Donnie's raspy voice and his 1970's-era Wurlitzer - morphed into an amalgamation of fresh sound and honed talent backed by Nashville and Muscle Shoals legends, and rising brilliants alike. John Paul came by the house and I just started playing songs on the Wurlitzer piano. John Paul said, if we do this album, you just play that Wurlitzer, sing the songs, and we'll build around it. Features John Prine, Brittany Murphy, The Secret Sisters, Dylan LeBlanc, Jason Isbell & Spooner Oldham. Donnie Fritts is a Florence, Ala. native and one of many local musical luminaries. He's a lauded songwriter, noted for his tracks We Had It All (recorded by scores of artists from Waylon Jennings and Dolly Parton to Ray Charles) and Breakfast in Bed which he co-wrote with EddieHinton for Dusty Springfield's album Dusty in Memphis. He played and travelled with Kris Kristofferson's band for nearly 20 years, and has released three previous albums-- Prone to Lean, Everybody's Got a Song, and the Dan Pennproduced One Foot in the Groove-- all stacked with hit original tracks.
