Don Bryant ‎– Don't Give Up on Love

Before the release of Don’t Give Up on Love, Don Bryant had cemented his place as a footnote in soul music history, enjoying his greatest success as a songwriter. He placed “I Got to Know” with the “5” Royales in 1960, when the trailblazing R&B group (originators of “Dedicated to the One I Love”) was on the downward slide. In the ‘70s he collaborated with Ann Peebles, who became his wife; one of the songs they composed together was her classic “I Can’t Stand the Rain.” Bryant’s own recordings for Hi Records in the second half of the ‘60s were the product of a competent, not particularly distinctive singer, who drew on Joe Tex, Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett for inspiration and scored no hits... Don’t Give Up on Love is a joyous miracle, and hopefully not the last one to come from this remarkable “newcomer.” Whatever Don Bryant’s been taking, we could all use a dose.
