5.0 out of 5 stars 60's Southern Soul - Great Genre of American Music., 6 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Fame Recordings (Audio CD)
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.
