Ernie Vincent has been on the New Orleans R&B scene since the 1970's with his band The Top Notes. He's flown mostly under the radar since, as he says, "I've always been the kind of guy who likes to work in the background supporting others rather than drawing attention to myself." Vincent has a solo album coming out in January, so expect to hear more from him. The latest single, "Mr. Good Daddy," certainly doesn't sound quite like anything else you've heard recorded in 2022. The song sounds like an unearthed lost soul/R&B classic from at least fifty years ago. It even has production that sounds classic. Vincent certainly doesn't sound like an artist in his late seventies. "Mr. Good Daddy" is as classic and vintage as it gets.
