Barry Towler (Soul Express)

Liberating soul at its best
One listen to this album lets us know that Ty Stephens is a herculean talent barely restrained, ready to let his sheer talent explode. The album is bohemian, eclectic and so soulful it hurts. The live songs on here defy belief and render the set essential. If you want to know what true, from-the-heart, real unfettered R&B is all about then check this CD out.
