In early 2004, Casual Records headed Stateside, where they had arranged for many of the leading lights featured on the Country Got Soul compilations to gather together in order to record with one another again for this unique project. With Dan Penn handling production from his basement studio, located just outside of Nashville, ‘Testifyin’ took shape over an intense ten-day period. The album sees the likes of Tony Joe White, Larry Jon Wilson, Donnie Fritts, Bonnie Bramlett, Billy Swan and George Soule lay down a slew of new tracks, backed by such legendary figures as Clayton Ivy on piano and organ, David Hood on bass, Spooner Oldham on Wurlitzer and Reggie Young on electric guitar as well as members of the Muscle Shoals and Memphis Horns.

These are the real old timers – the white southerners steeped in soul from the 60’s and 70’s - composers of classics such as ‘Rainy Night In Georgia’, ‘I’m Your Puppet’ and ‘Do Right Woman’ – coming together to delight in each other’s company, relive a few old memories and conjure up a few future ones.

Tales of heartbreak, tales of hope, torch songs and jams, the songs just came tumbling out; 13 of these feature on ‘Testifyin’; more are still in the can ready for future release. The recording sessions were also filmed by Don Letts, who has put together a documentary on the making of ‘Testifyin’, which is expected to be televised later in the year. It is also likely that several of the artists will be coming to the UK for live shows in the coming months.

Penn recalls the early days when country and soul music first overlapped in the South: “There was a lot of meanness going on between black people and white people, but there was also a lot of love”. It’s the love of the sweet soul sounds that comes shining through on Country Soul Revue – Testifyin’
