**1/2 Limited-range singer Earl Duke (think Nathaniel Kimble) returns with a typical set of programmed Southern Soul tracks. Duke had a couple hits in 2004 with "Mr. Fix It" & "I'm Down For You" for the same Mardi Gras label and could scoop one or two off this record as well. The celebratory "Southern Soul" has a memorable groove (similar to 'Mr Fix It") and message, "Drop It Like It's Hot" could get 'em dancing but the better cut are the bumpers "Welfare Lane" & "Truck Driver", which are really modernized Clarence Carter-isms circa mid 60s. The slinky title cut, a definite rip of the Johnnie Taylor/Ted Taylor hit of the same name, features real sax and an expert arrangement.
