“Doin’ It Right” is the second album re-issued by Luv N'Haight by Mike James Kirkland. A sacred gem in the soul and rare groove canon, it would fetch $500 and upward on the collectors’ market at time of re-issue. Mr. Kirkland’s sweet soulful voice floats off the turntable and into the collective consciousness on killer joints like “Got To Do It Right,” “Love Insurance” and “The Only Change,” plus five other groovy tracks. It also includes a phat breakbeat for those interested in that kind of thing. Both “Doin’ It Right” and “Hang On In There” are must-haves for all soul lovers. See also “Hang On In There,” the first Mike James Kirkland album re-issued by Luv N'Haight…..~


Excellent soul reissue from the good folks at Luv N’ Haight. This album once fetched around $500 on the collector markets, now you can own your own copy!…~


Originally from Yazoo City, Mississippi, Mike James Kirkland grew up singing doo wop and gospel. Eventually settling in California, Kirkland and his brother started a record label, Bryan Records, to release the love songs and socially conscious soul music that Kirkland had been writing. The two albums they released – Hang On in There in 1972 and its follow-up, Doin’ It Right, both echoed the style and sentiments of other artists determined to comment on social issues relevant to the African-American community: soul heavies like Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, and Stevie Wonder. The reputation of both albums slowly spread over the ensuing years, finally resulting in reissues in the ‘90s by archival label Luv N Haight, including the 2011 two-disc set Don’t Sell Your Soul, which combined both of Kirkland’s MCA albums with rare early tracks from his first band, Mike & the Censations, comprising a kind of collected works. ~ Wade Kergan…~
