I've Got A Question Babe...
I was looking through some of my old posts today and realised that I tend to use certain adjectives on a fairly regular basis such as cracking and certain nouns such as a belter. So just to carry on that tradition today's track is cracking and is certainly a belter. Undoubtedly an influence on the likes of Otis and Wilson Picket, Roscoe Shelton had a vocal that blended older styles of Southern blues with a sort of fervent, gospel-charged style that scored him a few hits in the mid 60's most notably the classic Strain On My Heart. Today's choice on Spools was recorded a year earlier and really showcases Roscoe's vocal talents.
