Like many other Dallas-based rhythm & blues musicians, Bobby Patterson is a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist who continued the deep soul tradition of people like Otis Redding, Joe Tex, and Wilson Pickett. But unlike some of these other singers, Patterson has worked in all aspects of the record business: as a songwriter, producer, promotion man, and label owner. Rare and famous this 1972 disc from overlooked Texas soul man Patterson has a bit of everything, gliding freely between easy soul (“Recipe for Peace”) and down-home funk. Check out “How Do You Spell Love” though, a cool, mid-tempo groover. Then there’s “Right On Jody“, another , funky soul cut. And then there’s “This Whole Funky World Is a Ghetto” – which isn’t quite as nice as it sounds but vaguely lives up to its potential.
