Doris Troy’s Sturdy Soul Caper, “You Give Me Joy Joy”

Discovered by soul general, James Brown during a stint as an usherette at Harlem’s Apollo, Doris Troy bagged her first top-ten hit for Atlantic with, “Just One Look” in 1963. She continued, singing backup on “My Sweet Lord” by George Harrison, Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain” and on celebrated albums, Let It Bleed by The Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd's, Dark Side Of The Moon.

In 1970 George Harrison signed ‘Mama Soul’ to Apple Records and waxed her self-titled long player, to little promotion and fanfare -- even though the album featured a mighty troupe of all-stars: Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Stephen Stills, Leon Russell, Ringo Starr, Jackie Lomax, Klaus Voorman, Peter Frampton, George Harrison and Delaney & Bonnie. Check out the doctors’ and nursemaids’ favorite number, the Troy/Harrison/Starr/Stills penned groover, “You Give Me Joy Joy” – a track steeped in soulful British blues revival, featuring six-string assaults by Harrison and Stills.

Doris Troy, vocals; George Harrison, guitar; Stephen Still, guitar; Ringo Starr, Drums; Klaus Voorman, bass; Leon Russell, piano.
