Jimmy Lewis

A reasonably interesting second-division soul singer, Jimmy Lewis released almost a dozen singles in the 1960s, including a duet with Ray Charles near the end of the decade ("If It Wasn't for Bad Luck"), and wrote and arranged every track on Charles' 1969 album Doing His Thing; Lewis has also worked with Charles in the 1990s. He recorded for Charles' Tangerine label and wrote material for minor soul stars like Bobby Womack, Ted Taylor, and Z.Z. Hill. He continued to write for Hill during Z.Z.'s most commercially successful period at Malaco Records, and produced one of Malaco's more popular singers, Latimore.

The most widely known of Lewis' own recordings is the 1974 album Totally Involved, if for no other reason than its reissue on CD in the late '90s. It's respectable Southern-styled soul (although Lewis has been based in Los Angeles for his whole career), grittier than the norm at a time when the entire genre was sliding into slickness. Still, you can hear why Lewis didn't become a star; he was at the top of the journeyman level, but didn't have a style that truly stood out, either in terms of his vocal delivery (which sometimes recalled, but did not match, Sam Cooke) or material. The best representation of his legacy is the CD Still Wanna Be Black, which has the entire Totally Involved album and twelve unissued songs from the same era. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

Love this kind of music...
this is the truth Jimmy Lewis tell it like it is andf the youngsters dont understand that these songs that are here now was way back when
I have lived in Chicago for the last 25 years and not once did I hear anything by Jimmy Lewis. I moved to Mississippi and I heard a song by him. I know Mr. Lewis's family and had a chance to hear stories about him from his sister,whose name is Ella Rose Rogers. I told her that I listen to Pandora and heard his song. She was excited and told me that his label was called MS Butch Records. We called his mother Ms. Butch. I knew her many years before her passing. Thank you Pandora for remembering a
