JIMMY BARNES - Best of the Soul Years
A quarter of a century in the making, here is Jimmy Barnes 'Best of the Soul Years!'
Collected here for the very first time, it's all the highlights from Jimmy's ongoing artistic pilgrimage into the music and songs that inspired him to become a singer in the first place.
Compiled from his three mega-platinum-selling albums of soul and R&B classics, being 1991's 'Soul Deep,' 2000's 'Soul Deeper' and 2009's 'The Rhythm And The Blues' – each and every song here is a certified classic hit in its own right, and all have been given the inimitable and unmistakable Jimmy Barnes treatment.
With so many of these songs, Jimmy has made them so much his own, it's easy to forget they weren't his in the first place. A few have become cornerstones in his eclectic career, such as "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher and Higher," "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," "Signed Sealed Delivered (I'm Yours)" and his chart-topping duet with John Farnham, "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby."
And just to add some extra cream to this cake, two brand new recordings have been added to this collection - Jimmy's celebratory interpretations of the Wilson Pickett classics, "In the Midnight Hour" and "Mustang Sally."
Jimmy cut both tracks during his recent trip to Nashville to record the fourth album of the Soul Series. Due for release in early 2016, 'Soul Searchin' has been produced by Kevin Shirley and is the final instalment in this extraordinary sideline to Jimmy's solo recording career.
