Better To Have It


This brand new album by Soul, Gospel and R&B singer Ben Moore (a.k.a. Bobby Purify) reunites him with producer Dan Penn after more than forty years, and the result is no less than superb. Moores signature vocals are accompanied by original Muscle Shoals rhythm players David Hood, Spooner Oldham and Jimmie Johnson, along with Memphis stalwarts such as Reggie Young, Wayne Jackson and others. The album, with liner notes by legendary producer Jerry Wexler, touts twelve new songs written by Dan Penn with Malaco session leader Carson Whitsett and Nashville songwriting veteran Bucky Lindsey. Its fresh on the heels of their critically acclaimed collaboration "Dont Give Up On Me", featured on Solomon Burkes grammy-winning release of the same name. The basic tracks were recorded analog, live in the studio, in much the same way as the hundreds of other hit recordings that this same constellation of players have garnered to their collective credit. IT'S BETTER TO HAVE IT is sure to contribute its own remarkable chapter to American Rhythm and Blues history. Tracks: Better To Have It / I'm Qualified / Things Happen / What's Old To You / Forever Changed / My Life To Live Over / Nobody's Home / Somebody's Got To Do It / Hate To See You Go / The Pond / Testimony Of A Fool / You Make Me Dig / Only In America.
