"I Got Played On" (Lee & Co. 2004)

tracks include "I Got Played On", "Party All Night", "Party Weekend", "Tender Trap", "I Don't Know You Anymore", "Junkyard" & more (full tracklist needed)

** Likable independently-released Southern Soul from Morris, who made a little noise with "Rumpshaker" & "Whip It On U" a few years back. I believe this is his third album and you can call "I Got Played On" Ecko Records-lite soul as it features co-producer Morris J. Williams, a key player in that company's signature sound. One thing's for certain- this is the best singing Lee Morris has waxed to date. He reminds me of Johnnie Taylor on the title song and the very best cut "Party All Night", which also boasts a fine sax lead line (Ron Echols) on a mostly-programmed effort. Much like Ecko this disc mixes live instruments with synthesizers and tracking. "Party All Night", 'I Got Played On" and "Party Weekend" could work as radio singles for sure. Despite the fine singing this 10-track disc suffers overall from some second-rate material ("I Don't Know You Anymore", "Tender Trap") and an occasionally poor mix ("Junkyard"). Still, there's enough good tracks to make it worth checking out.
