Time zone: central
Ray Charles “What Am I Living For”
from The Complete Country & Western Recordings 1959-1986 (Rhino 1998) —I enjoy Ray's excursions along the country-soul highway, but the amount of his own songwriting credits tailed off considerably coincident with this time frame.
Johnny Adams “You Can Depend On Me”
from Absolutely The Best (Fuel 2000 www.fuel2000.com 2002) —this was an unreleased recording from the SSS International archives...why it's wasn't released at the time is a mystery to me. Recorded during Johnny's 2nd stint with SSS Intl which ran from '71-'73.
Roy Milton “R.M. Blues”
from Roy Milton And His Solid Senders The Legends Of Specialty Series Vol. 1 (Specialty 1990) —L.A.-based Milton was one of the finest bandleaders from the early R&B era, as well as a singing drummer. Camille Howard on piano.
Charles Earland “Organyk Groove”
from The Mighty Burner The Best Of His Highnote Recordings (highnote 2004) —originally released on the Slammin' & Jammin' LP. Recorded by the man - I say, The Man - Mr. Rudy Van Gelder in 1997.
