O.V. Wright - A Nickel And A Nail (Back Beat 622)
A Nickel And A Nail
OK folks, like I was saying over on The B Side, they just don't come much better than this. One of those 'Mount Rushmore of Soul' songs that we've talked about in the past (like The Dark End Of The Street), it never fails to knock me out.
Released on this date in 1971, right in between Al Green's smash hits Tired Of Being Alone and Let's Stay Together, it gives you an idea of just how amazing things were back then on South Lauderdale Street.
