Fifty Dollar Habit...

On one of the comments on Sunday's Judy Clay posting, I was reminded of her great duet with William Bell. I have posted before,back in 2011, about this much underrated and understated of soul singers who was one of the principal architects of the Stax/Volt sound, but as you can never have too much of a good thing I felt it was time for another airing of his prodigious talent.

Best known for "Private Number" and his debut single from 1961 "You Don't Miss Your Water" he had a recording career stretching over 30 years. I can't claim to be an expert on his work but I have always been fond of this track from his 1972 release on Stax, "Phases Of Reality".

I don't recall posting a track with an electric sitar before on Spools..not sure if it is just me but it reminds me of "Papa Was A Rolling Stone"...Hope you enjoy...
