Well, so much for my memory. I had thought that the last track of that set was Traffic.

Arthur Alexander, one of the great voices of early soul
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 10:30pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, what a singer!
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 10:34pm Doug Schulkind:

I third that (e)motion.
Avatar    Wed. 9/13/17 10:34pm Kris Holmes:

and one i never really bothered grabbing 45s by
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 10:34pm Funky16Corners:

Great bridge between soul and country as well.
Avatar    Wed. 9/13/17 10:35pm Kris Holmes:

yep, that later stuff from the early 70s is slept on from an artistic standpoint
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 10:37pm Funky16Corners:

His only other R&B hit, besides Anna was a 1978 cover of Dr Hook's 'Sharing the Night Together'?!?
Avatar    Wed. 9/13/17 10:37pm Kris Holmes:

speaking of great voices!! Little Danny & I had a lengthy text message convo about the awesomeness of Jimmy Hughes a month or so back.
Avatar    Wed. 9/13/17 10:37pm Kris Holmes:

You Better Move On wasn't a hit?
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 10:38pm Funky16Corners:

Not on the R&B charts
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 10:38pm Funky16Corners:

Minor pop hit
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 10:39pm Funky16Corners:

Which is weird, right?
Avatar    Wed. 9/13/17 10:39pm Kris Holmes:

Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 10:40pm Funky16Corners:

Pre-Beatles/Stones, too, so it wasn't like he was picking up juice from them
Avatar    Wed. 9/13/17 10:40pm Kris Holmes:

i still think his debut 45 "Girl That Radiates That Charm" is hard to top.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 10:42pm Funky16Corners:

As 'June' Alexander!

Avatar    Wed. 9/13/17 10:49pm Kris Holmes:

there isn't a dud Jackie McLean record on Blue Note, super solid.
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 10:50pm Funky16Corners:

Yeah, perhaps the great inside/outside guy on the label

Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 10:51pm Funky16Corners:

Blue Mitchell on trumpet, who oddly enough made an appearance on the Funky16Corners Radio Show two weeks ago
Avatar    Wed. 9/13/17 10:52pm Kris Holmes:

another great player
Avatar Wed. 9/13/17 10:53pm Funky16Corners:

Those 1960s sessions are insane. Even the sidemen were stars
