Album Notes
Frank Bey—a staple of the Philadelphia music scene—has teamed up with long time Bay Area guitarist Anthony Paule. Together they have recorded this tour de force of ten choice, live performances ranging from old school soul to blues. All tracks were recorded live on July 20, 2012 at Biscuits & Blues nightclub in San Francisco. Paule’s seven piece band is comprised of the Bay Area’s finest musicians and the results are stunning. Musicians are Anthony Paule; Guitar, Paul Revelli; Drums, Paul Olguin; Bass, Nancy Wright; Tenor Sax, Mike Rinta; Trombone, Tony Lufrano; Keyboards, and Steffen Kuehn; Trumpet. The audio quality of the recording is excellent…something which can be elusive in a live recording. All tracks are previously unreleased.
Frank Bey began his singing career performing gospel at the tender age of 4. Along with his brother and two cousins, their group The Rising Sons toured around Georgia making live appearances as well as radio broadcasts. At age 17 he joined the Otis Redding Revue working as the opening act for several years. During his time with Otis Redding, Frank honed his singing and performing skills to a world class level. After a long hiatus from the music business during the 80s and 90s, Frank is back on the scene in full force, wowing audiences around the country.
Anthony Paule has been a mainstay of the Bay Area music scene for many years touring and recording with luminaries such as Boz Scaggs, Charlie Musselwhite, Maria Muldaur, The Johnny Nocturne Band, Mark Hummel, and others. Anthony has released two solo CDs and can often be heard fronting his own group. This recording puts Paule in full stride with this eight piece soul band setting, finding him in his element backing up a fine singer.
This release will be receiving an intense press and radio promotion campaign which will include key publications and programs around the U.S. as well as internationally. Promotion of this release will include extensive touring of the U.S. and Europe.

A really hot record!....
Really great album.
Very good sax and guitar.
All backed by a strong rhythm section.
Well worth the cost of the record.

Killer live set by a Philly soulman with amazing old-school vocal chops
Recorded live at San Francisco's Biscuits & Blues, You Don't Know Nothing captures a journeyman soul singer in his element, pushing a crack band on a compelling set of songs that range from stinging blues and aching soul ballads to a funkified rethinking of John Lennon's "Imagine."
Bey's been a major presence on the Philly soul scene for decades, and with this release he's poised for some long-overdue national attention.

The Jerry Ragovoy-penned title tune kicking off the CD serves notice that you're in for a treat: an ominous, pent-up guitar intro melds with a velvety horn section over which Bey demonstrates whisper-to-a-scream dynamics with phrasing to die for on this dramatic soul-blues number. His rich baritone takes center stage as he schools a friend about what it takes to survive the relationship game.

The next selection, "Ain't That Loving You," picks up the tempo as Bey engages in some gritty call and response with the band dogging his every move.

Taking the tempo down again, the singer infuses Lennon's "Imagine" with whole new levels of meaning that I somehow think the late Beatle would have heartily approved of.

While Bay takes a breather, veteran San Francisco guitarist and bandleader Anthony Paule changes up the mood with a reverb-soaked instrumental take on the '60s Gene Pitney hit, "Town Without Pity" The horn section adds cinematic breadth to Paule's lead work conjuring up shades of a '60s spy-flick soundtrack.

The show takes a sharp right turn down Funk Street on "Still Called the Blues,"an uptempo vocal workout punctuated with chicken-pickin' guitar, a rambunctious bass line and a smeary trombone solo by Mike Rinta who crafted the exemplary horn charts.

Anthony Paule takes the vocal spotlight on the jumpin' blues "Can't Get the Time of Day" before turning the mic back over to Bey on the Ray Charles chestnut "Hard Times" that evokes Brother Ray's reading while retaining Bey's signature sound.

"Midnight and Day", a mid-tempo number, gets the set back on the funk track with everybody having a ball supporting Bey's cautionary tale of star-crossed love.

The groove deepens with the kiss-off "Get Your Money Where You Spend Your Time," with a killer horn chart that might remind you of Tower of Power's finest moments. Bey's shouts urge tenor player Nancy Wright through a squalling solo before the band kicks in with a driving finish.

Frank Bey lets it all hang out on the finale, the pain-tinged slow soul ballad, "You've Got to Hurt Before You Heal," convincing us that he's a graduate summa cum laude of the School of Hard Knocks.

You Don't Know Nothing is beautifully recorded, putting you in the middle of an intimate club setting among an appreciative crowd of soul and blues aficionados who know a good thing when they hear it. If there's any justice, the release of this CD will help catapult Frank Bey and his sublime supporting cast of San Francisco pros into far greater visibility. Anybody who loves the soulful vocals of people like Bobby "Blue" Bland, Ray Charles and Little Milton shouldn't hesitate to add You Don't Know Nothing to their collection.

The real deal
This CD is the real deal. Frank Bey and the Anthony Paule Band have come together live, for some serious R&B soul ballads, hip shakin’ funk, and big band jump blues. They’ve got it covered like an electric blanket with a combination; in the pocket air-tight rhythm section, exquisite horn arrangements, superb keyboard work, masterful guitar playing, and great solo work shared by guitar and sax, all topped off with Frank Bey’s straight from the heart, dead-on, soulful vocals…nothing but the honest truth here. This is one dynamic uptown soul band and the fact that these songs are well recorded, mixed, and mastered is even more of a reason why this CD is a must for anyone who loves great music.
