Blue Eyed Soul :: You Ain’t No Weight

Originating as a lounge duo in Brooklyn, organist and arranger Norman Marcelle and vocalist Lynn Marshall recruited Lynn’s sister Deedee on drums to lay down You Ain't No Weight in 1980, calling themselves Blue Eyed Soul and casting a lo-fi blaze of private-press, left-of-center soul, gospel, and r&b. While reissued digitally in 2019 via Numero Group’s From the Stacks series, much more detail about the album or group appears scant, its relative quiet existence belying its odd and awesome singularity . . .
