Sounds For Sunday: JJ Barnes

JJ Barnes was from Detroit, and released some cracking tunes. At one point he was signed to Motown, but because he sounded a lot like Marvin Gaye they didn't know what to do with him. And yes there similarities to Marvin vocally. But there are, as I said, cracking tunes, including an incredible version of Daytripper that in my opinion outdoes Otis' version by a mile. Listen and enjoy.

(Check out last week's Sunday sounds for a couple more tracks by Mr Barnes too..)
