'Prince' Phillip Mitchell

Welcome to this weeks Science of Soul in anticipation of 'Prince' Phillip Mitchell's appearance next weekend I have decided to feature 3 tracks in a row by the great man. Phillip is performing a one-off show here in the UK before heading for the Porretta Soul Festival in Italy the following weekend. If you can make either shows make sure you do, because it's gonna be something special.

Dee Robinson is a name very familiar to Science of Soul listeners as I featured her last album "Grown and Sexy Lullaby's" quite heavily last year, this week we have her brand new single; "There Was A Time." I am a big fan of Dee's, and this new track does not disappoint, also have a great new remix of Tanya Holt's recent release "Forever More" thanks to my good friend Mr Dwayne Palmer who is doing great work with his production company Lovebeams Music, It's the same company who are responsible for the great recent releases by Robert H Fowler ... I look forward to future projects from these very talented and soulful guys. Other new music from the lovely Gina Carey, Johnny Britt and I did promise another track from London based Kejam Majic. This weeks features the vocals of Chanel plus all the old school classics you love and just might have forgotten ... even got a little rap on the show Tone Loc's classic "Why" OK pour a glass of wine sit back and relax .... It's 'Soul Time'.

Phillip Mitchell's biography:
Leroy Phillip Mitchell (born June 27, 1944), often credited as Prince Phillip Mitchell, is an American R&B singer, songwriter, and record producer. He wrote "Starting All Over Again" for Mel and Tim, and "It Hurts So Good" and "Leftovers", which were both hits for Millie Jackson, as well as having some success in the 1970s and 1980s as a solo singer.
Mitchell was born in Louisville, Kentucky, and began singing when at school. After first learning trumpet, he taught himself to play guitar and piano, and started writing songs at an early age. He became lead singer in a local group, the Checkmates, who first recorded in 1961, before he left to join another group, the Cash Registers, who had previously been led by Alvin Cash.
