Album Notes
This CD has been nominated for two 2007 Carolina Beach Music awards.
On the heels of his hit, I Want A Love I Can See from his Where Have You Been? album and One20inc’s compilation, Soul Street III, Angel Rissoff has released a 16-song compilation, Angel’s Nu Soul Explosion. The CD was produced by Angel and mastered by Seth Glassman (Jr. Mintz). Look for numerous songs on this one to find their way into Chartville. Do you remember Mama Soul by The Soul Survivors. Though it was Expressway To Your Heart that brought them national recognition, it was Mama Soul that hit the Beach charts. The group has gotten back together to give us a new version of this classic. Another feature on the release is Dixie Dog by Murray Weinstock with Dr. John on the lead vocals. This song comes from an obscure CD, Tails Of The City, which all of the songs come from the dog’s point of view. One of my all-time favorite songs is You’re So Fine by The Falcons with Joe Stubbs on the lead. Joe is the brother of The Four Tops’ Levi Stubbs and also sang with The Contours (Do You Love Me), 100 Proof (Aged In Soul) (Somebody’s Been Sleeping In My Bed) and The Originals (Please Mr. Postman and Baby I’m For Real). Gary “Gotta Gotta” Lovett gives just a fabulous rendition of this classic. Gary was with Little Isadore’s band along with Angel, who appeared as Little Leopold with the group. Bobby Harden has two numbers on the release. What do you call it? caught my attention, but You Gonna Be Just Fine came on to me even stronger. The Rosalinde Block Party has two cuts on the release that are worth listening to carefully, Never Known Love and a smoothie, Isn’t It Love, which Angel joins in on the vocals of the latter. Angel has several solo selections on the compilation. Though More Where That Came From is good, and I’m Gonna Forget About You is even better, look for Soothe You to make its way into the charts in short order. It looks as if Angel Rissoff is going to remain on the charts for a long time coming. I know Judy Collins at Judy’s House of Oldies in North Myrtle Beach will carry this one, as will The Wax Museum in Charlotte. You can also get this one on line through Angel’s website,


Angel's Nu-Soul Explosion
Various Artists
My long time friend Angel Rissoff has put together a collection of sixteen songs that run the gamut from Southern Soul to Northern Soul with some extras tossed in the mix to make this a true "Compilation CD". There are several original tunes here, like Angel's "Soothe You", "More Where That Came From"; Danny Draher's "Big Fun Tonight", the talented Ratso's "The Spark"; "Never Known Love" from Rosalinde Block Party, "Dixie Dog" brought to us by Murray Weinstock and the legendary Dr. John; Bobby Harden's "You're Gonna Be Just Fine" and a song that I've been playing for months - Fonda Feingold's "Love You Should Have Stayed". As an added bonus, you also get Gary "Gotta Gota" Lovett's version of "You're So Fine" and The Soul Survivors' "Mama Soul". Being a big Sam Cooke fan, I am often wary of people covering one of Sam's songs. Angel's rendition of "I'm Gonna Forget About You" is right on the money. Now, there's one song on here that defies categorization. "Mighty Cootie Fiyo" from The Junior Mintz Blues Machine with help from Rissoff is a song that definitely grabs your attention. It's reminiscent of Lou Bega's "Mambo Number 5" and I can see a dance floor full of line dancers have a good time with this song. OK, I can hear a few of you saying, "I have never heard of some of these artists!" Well, there's a first time for everything, my music loving friends. Like Mr. T could say, "I pity the fool who don't find something on this CD they like or want to dance to." This CD should be available in the usual well known sources for Beach Music. If you have trouble finding it, email me and I'll tell you how to obtain a copy.

Angel is a musician, producer, music arranger and specially an excellent song writer and a high quality singer. Also he always takes care of the smaller details in every new record he publishes and he does it with a professional precise care. This neo-soul and rhythm and blues compilation gathers sixteen tracks with a variety of styles and a vocal and instrumental richness, all them powerfully performed by a bunch of amazing musicians and bands like, besides Angel himself, Bobby Harden, Ratso, The Rosalinde Block Party, Murray Weinstock, Fonda, Soul Survivors among other similar talented quality artists. A record that should call your attention because it deserves an outstanding place over the number of mediocre albums that are daily published. GREAT.
