Leo De Castro & Friends - Voodoo Soul
[BBM004]

$28.00

Leo De Castro has injected a fiery soul into everything
he's sung since first forming bands in Auckland back in
1968. He moved to Australia soon afterwards and was
warmly welcomed by the pub rock scene, making a name
for himself in bands like The Browns, Leo And Friends and
King Harvest. BigBeat Music have decided that Leo De Castro's voice
has been overlooked for too long and have dug up a few past
recordings from the late '80s for our edification/pleasure.

Voodoo Soul sees "The Greatest Soul Singer In Australia"
performing a three-night run at The Basement in Sydney in
1987, joined by a crack R&B outfit for a sweaty run through
some soul standards. De Castro is introduced and wails his way
through such gems as 'Mustang Sally', 'Mr Pitiful', 'Papa's Got
A Brand New Bag', 'Shake' and 'Hound Dog' as well as getting
more tender on 'Spanish Harlem' and 'Fooled Around & Fell In
Love'. It's raw, energetic R&B.
