Tyrone Davis Trivia Question

Postby FatherGino » Fri Aug 07, 2015 3:26 pm

Does anyone know who played on Tyrone Davis' songs: "Can I Change My Mind" & "Turn Back the Hands of Time"? I could never find a listing. I always found their sound interesting. I guess they're from Chicago but I always think of it more like Memphis.

Thanks for the links.

Not sure that's the guy though or at least the listings for him don't include the earlier Tyrone stuff. The "Can I Change My Mind" album has a very distinct sound with a very prominent bass in it. Very sustain-less flatwound sound (with a pick maybe?); similar but distinct (to me anyway) to a lot of soul tunes from that era. Interestingly, there's several YouToob entries of that song that is a totally different take or maybe even a different band. The original is a dirtier recording but a better version.

Yeah I always loved those two albums.

Here's another nice song:

I have great memories of Tyrone Davis. I saw him open for Johnnie Taylor and bumped into him on a flight once.
He also had a club on the West side in the 90's.
I don't know the answer, but it might be found in this book Chicago Soul: http://product.half.ebay.com/Chicago-So ... 68&tg=info
I read the book, which I had borrowed. It has all the details about the subject, especially labels and producers, maybe players.
An interesting read, tons of research.
Someone knows, I'll ask around.

Cool book but out of print and a bit pricey. Guess I'm being a cheapskate, huh?

[quote="Rob Francis"]Sounds like Memphis to me too but on Atlantic Records. Bernard Reed
http://www.allmusic.com/artist/bernard- ... /biography

http://www.discogs.com/artist/644397-Bernard-Reed[/quote]

My source agrees:

Bernard Reed on Bass
Carl Woolfolk on guitar
Quinton Joseph on Drums
Floyd Morris on Keyboards

BTW on the allmusic bio
Reggie Board must be a typo for Reggie Boyd THE mentor for black Chicago guitarists and rumored to have been the actual player on the first Chuck Berry Chess sides.

No. You're not. I was glad I borrowed it. A real lot of minutae. I think the writer was an academic from the Univ. of Chicago. You'd have to be into the whole history, or at least huge chunks of it. Carl Davis, Gene Chandler and Curtis Mayfield (deservedly) take up large sections of the book. Most of the rest is bands, producers and players you probably have never heard of.

Great that's more info than I could ever find. Maybe knowing some of those names will clue me into some other gems from that era/area. I'm not crazy about the direction soul music took at the dawn of the disco era but I love the late sixties/early seventies stuff.
