On this edition of Soul Talkin’, we pay tribute to the late James Ingram as we discuss his contribution to music as a fine vocalist and songwriter. In our discussion, we talk about James’ second #1 hit (his only as a solo act), “I Don’t Have The Heart” – produced, arranged and conducted by the great Thom Bell (whom we chat about as well regarding his remarkable career). Leading up to our Dionne Warwick chat re: the Thom Bell-produced album “Track Of The Cat”, and a previously unreleased Dionne/Thom tune David had found in the Warner Bros. vault years ago. All this on the “expanded edition” of Soul Talkin’!
