ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
James D. Smith moved to Flint, Michigan from Blytheville, Arkansas in 1965. He began singing in 1967, performing cover hits by the "King of Soul", James Brown. Smith was introduced as "Little James Brown" when he was asked to perform as a follow up act for Al Green at the Motor City Night Club. There, he met Mrs. Glenora, "Ms. G" Roland, who took on the role as James' booking agent. That night was the springboard for his singing career. Ms. G. booked James for performances in numerous hot spots including Cleveland, Ohio and Saginaw, Michigan.

From there, James' career took off. There was no lack of work for his band. He gives tremendous credit to former owner of the Casablanca, respectfully called "Fat Man" by all who knew him. James and his band had a weekly gig at the Casablanca whenever they were in town. There were many well known artists performing there at that time.

James also performed with the Music Extravaganza Band for 5 years. He traveled with them on a Midwest tour in states including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, and Michigan.

James has had the pleasure of performing on shows with great artist such as the late Darrell Banks (Open the Door to Your Heart), the late Joe Henderson (Ain't It Funny How Time Slips Away), and Wilson Picket (In the Midnight Hour). James also performed with the late Johnny Taylor and Tyrone Davis. On the Blues circuit, James shared the stage with J. Blackfoot, Carl Sims, Bill Coday, Latimore, Sir Charles, Shirley Brown and Denise LaSalle. He had the opportunity to perform on a duet with the late O.V. Wright.

James recorded "Mr. Lover Man" and "Play On It" in 1996 and since that time he as recorded over 20 of his songs. In 1997, James established James D. Smith Productions through which he has written scores of songs for himself, other recording artists and Ecko Records. In 1999, "Mr. Lover Man" and "Play On It" were both re-recorded by Chuck Roberson for his national CD release entitled "Love Power".

James Smith has recorded and released six CD's. His latest CD release, titled "James Smith's Greatest Hits" features his new single "Plumber Man".

Good Grown Folks Music.....
The Plumber Man is a very good song (Five Star), and James Smith has a good voice, just wished he had made a longer version of the song. This rest of the CD is pretty good ole Southern Soul Music......
