Norton Music Proudly Presents:

Roy Hawkesford User Style and
Arrangement (Fake) Disk #4
For Band-in-a-Box

Classic Soul and R&B

44 New Styles and 77 New Arrangements

This disk is a slight detour from his previous ones which were very much a homage to great jazz styles. In the third, Roy included styles that were based on the combo sound of artists who fused jazz with Blues, R&B or Latin. The fourth is devoted exclusively to the development of sounds that combined the above with Rock'n'Roll and Gospel.

Among the first stars of Soul and R&B were Ray Charles, Louis Jordan, Joe Turner, Bill Doggett, Ruth Brown, Etta James and BE King. As the teen market flourished, records became focused on the young and lost much of their earlier jazz content. As a teenager Roy grew up with the sounds of all the artists represented on this disk, and he still includes many of the songs in his current repertoire.

For many, the quintessence of Soul is to be found in the small but astonishing output generated by the tiny, purist label, Star (and its parent company Atlantic), and its collective of house musicians and producers: Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Hayes & Porter, Eddie Floyd, and others.

While most of the styles on 'Classic Soul And R&B' reflect his interest in the above, Roy has also recreated styles reminiscent of associated artists and songs which might be regarded as extensions of these sounds: Bill Withers, Aaron Neville, Bonnie Raitt, even Robert Palmer and occasionally Bruce Springsteen. Funk also derives from Gospel, hence the inclusion of, for instance, -SOULFUN, -JIMFUNK (based on Jimmy Smith's work at Verve) and -NADINE. A Ry Cooder Gospel influenced style is also included. Some songs will be very familiar, others you may have to search for if you don't know them. However, every title is readily available; they shouldn't be too hard to find.

Here are the 44 great new styles contained on this disk:

And the 77 arrangements (songs) on this disk are:

634-5789 A Fool For You Across The Borderline Addicted To Love Ain't No Sunshine At The Dark End Of The Street Barefootin' Caldonia Centrepiece Chain Of Fools Choo Choo Ch'Boogie Do Right Woman / Man Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying Don't You Know, Baby Dr. Feelgood Drown In My Own Tears Everybody Needs Somebody Fever Fire Flip, Flop & Fly Get On The Right Track Got My Mojo Workin' Greenbacks Hallelujah, I Love Her So Heal Yourself! Hold On, I'm Coming Honky Tonk How Can A Poor Man Stand Such Times And Live How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You I Ain't Superstitious I Heard It Through The Grapevine I Just Want To Make Love To You I Live The Life I Love I Put A Spell On You I Stand Accused I'd Rather Drink Muddy Water I'd Rather Go Blind If You Need Me In The Midnight Hour It Should Have Been Me It Won't Be Long Knock On Wood Let The Good Times Roll Lonely Avenue Love Letters Mercy Mercy Mustang Sally Nadine Never Make Your Move Too Soon Rescue Me Respect See Saw Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay Smack Dab In The Middle Something To Talk About Soul Man Soulville Stand By Me Stay With Me Baby Still Is The Night Stormy Monday Sweet Lover Teardrops From My Eyes Tell It Like It Is Tell Mama Think~ Today I Sing The Blues Trouble In Mind Trouble, You Can't Fool Me You Don't Miss Your Water Your Mind Is On Vacation

The arrangements on this disk are not necessarily either like the original artist who recorded the song or the writer of the song. While most of the styles are transferable to any song in any key, a few complement songs that sport a 'one-off' arrangement.

Note: Roy prefers to use the term arrangement as opposed to fake, but whatever the name it must be noted that these Band-in-a-Box files do not contain melodies or any other copyright material.
