Description

Written by Joe South. Produced by Rick Hall. Great treatment of the Joe South classic by Willie Hightower with one of the best r&b producers, Rick Hall, at the helm. Recorded at the Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Willie had two small hits during a recording career that spanned about twelve years beginning in 1965. Joe South released his version the same year as Willies; Joe’s version reached #12, while Willie had to settle for a bubbling under slot at #107. Rick Hall was super active at this time, producing, among others, Wilson Picket, the Osmonds, Clarence Carter and Wayne Newton. Fame Records ran for about ten years from 1963-73.
