Fans of any of the great soul singers from the 1960's , Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Percy Sledge, Arthur Alexander, Joe Tex, Wilson Pickett, Arthur Conley, or Alex Chilton of the Box Tops will relish this treasure trove of Muscle Shoals gems sung by the composer of many of the classics from the same era. When your hear his voice you will find it hard to believe he is white, sounds like a mixture of all of the aforementioned greats. This is an album to listen to all the way through and to let soak in, you will like it right away but it will also grow on you with repeated playing. If this sounds like your cup of tea I highly recommend that you seek out the rare cds Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham Live "Moments From THIS Theatre", Dann Penn's "Do Right Man", which both contain more polished versions of "You Left The Water Running" and "It Tears Me Up". Also look for Arthur Alexander's "Rainbow Road" and Best of James and Bobby Purify and "Dark End Of The Street" by anyone one who has ever recorded it. I admit I am biased towards this genre of American music as I was a teenager in the 1960's but to me this is music of substance that has stood the test of time.

We all know Dan Penn as the songwriter who didn't like to step into the limelight himself.
He wrote the hits for others often with Spooner Oldham but also with Donnie Frits or Marlin Greene or Bob Killen.
We all know the big hits he's written for others: The Letter By The Box Tops, Dark End of The Street, I'm your puppet, Do Right Woman.
You will not find many of Penn's solo output rather many compilation albums of his songs sung by others.
Yeah, that kind of man.
But now, with the Fame recordings,you'll find a whole album of Penn's demo's (most in fully recorded form).
Some of his hits are here: The Puppet (as it was originally called) and You left the Water Running and It Tears Me Up.
Lesser known beauties as Rainbow Road and Far from the Maddenning Crowd are certainly worth their weight.
Anyway, 24 tracks that are all worth of your time.
This really is the album to get for 2012.

Along with Delbert McClinton,Dan Penn must be the best white soul singer in the business..Great performances-even on the slightly less than wow numbers.Good recordings which is to be expected from the Fame Studios-a great album
