Look At Me Now

Terry Callier has had a sort of renaissance over the last few years what with supplying vocals for the likes of Massive Attack and working with Farley & Heller and Paul Weller amongst others.

His recording career stretches back to 1963 and covering the genres of Jazz, Soul and Folk. Not the kind of stuff that you would associate with northern soulbut tunes like Ordinary Joe and today's posting caught the attention of the more discerning on the scene.

Look At Me Know was originally released on the Cadet label in 1968 and pretty much sank without a trace until it was embraced by the northern fraternity. These days an original copy of the 7" will set you back at least a couple of hundred quid, well worth it if you have that kind of spare cash.

Ah time to dig out my Terry. Haven't listened to him for a while.

Callier's I Don't Want To See Myself (Without You) is a wonder song. Jazzy, Soulful and just hip enough to have been one of those foundation tracks for the Acid Jazz Movement of the early 90's.
A great voice and songsmith.
