Info for Purdie Good! (Remastered)

Purdie Good! was recorded early in 1971 by legendary engineer and audio obsessive Rudy Van Gelder at his bespoke studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey and has all the quality hallmarks of that esteemed locale. Three Purdie-penned originals are balanced by three covers of hits du jour, utmost among them an absolutely blazing romp through James Brown’s “Cold Sweat.”

Purdie had previously played a whole range of session work - he was the drummer on James Brown's It's A Man's Man's World and he'd also participated in several rock dates during the CBS Rock Machine Turns You On era. He became musical director for Aretha Franklin from 1970-75 (his love of her music comes over in the heartfelt Soul Sister Number One from his Flying Dutchman album Soul Is. ..Pretty Purdie.
