David Clowney (b.k.a Dave “Baby” Cortez) played the organ with the same aggression as a pro football linebacker: he was theatrical, dressed loud and loved playing exaggerated scales. He scored with “The Happy Organ,” a million-seller in the ’60s. On his only LP for the Isley Brothers’ T-Neck subsidiary he performs instrumentals of the Isleys and other T-Neck artists’ songs. Funky versions of “It’s Your Thing,” the insidious “I Turned You On” and “I Know Who You Been Socking It To” will get your feet’s attention. A cover of “Love Is What You Make It” by the Sweet Cherries is a decent organ-led ballad. Baby’s rendition of Judy Clay’s “Somebody’s Been Messin’ with My Thing” is as solid as the vocal. Far too brief, it only takes 26 minutes to hear all ten songs.
