Agreed, a wonderful artist. Up there in my all time top three and some days he's number one.

IMO his more uptempo tracks are the his worst recordings, but that's me.

Rightly known as one of the absolute greats.

If theres anybody out there whos not aware of this great track, purchase the Sean Hampsey compiled cd Love And Jealousy which contains the track plus about 20 others in the same vein all for about 4 quid from Amazon amongs others.

His five gospel 45s with the Sunset travelers on Peacock are also very nice:

Drop the first 47 secs and pitch up a touch.

Love it.

Doc

You have your wish Chris, my copy has only a 17 second intro before the music kicks in and it's 3.55 long. Must be at least two versions.

.... Have to say he's not one of my favourite artists (a lot of his material is a bit too raw. earthy, southern & bluesy for my taste but to each their own) .... What about his great version of Bobby Womack's - That's The Way I Fee About Cha From Bottom Line LP (only?) P.S. I notice this song was co-written by Joe Hicks (Don't It Make Me Feel Funky fame?)

As an Apple fanboy I've always enjoyed this one, very happy when I got hold of the single, after encountering it on an LP compilation of his:
