Prince Phillip Mitchell: Atlantic Crossing

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, 19 June 1979

AFTER TEN years of giving his best songs to other acts – notably 'Starting All Over Again' for Mel & Tim, 'Hurt So Good' for Millie Jackson, 'Oh La De Da' for the Staples; 'Carry Me' for Joe Simon; and hits for Ben E. King & the Average White Band, Candi Staton, Archie Bell & the Drells, Norman Connors and Bobby Womack – the time is ripe for Prince Phillip Mitchell to claim his rights as an artist.
