Album · 1976 · 10 Songs. Joe Simon's In the Same Old Way - EP. 2006.
The Power of Joe Simon is the eighth studio album recorded by American singer Joe Simon, released in 1973 on the Spring Records label.
There is a certain weary, desperate edge to Joe Simon's voice that makes every song he sings feel like a plea for personal redemption, and no singer better bridges the thematic connections between soul and country than this man, who managed to bring Memphis to Nashville, then trucked both off to Philadelphia. Throughout Simon sounds sad, weary, desperate, beaten up by love, yet resolute and oddly hopeful, like the man you meet at the bar who has been through hell but is sure brighter days are coming, even if there is little evidence for it. The Rhino anthology Music in My Bones is still probably the place to start with Simon, but Lookin' Back makes a competent substitute.
