Item ID: 365811

Hot on the heels of the sensational "The FAME Studios Story" box comes Kent's first compilation of 1960s recordings by a man revered in soul circles for six decades. As talented as he was prolific - and this is the first of what could end up being as many as three compilations of George Fame's material - he wrote songs for just about every important artist to record at FAME from 1968-72. Recorded at FAME's studios in Muscle Shoals and Memphis, here are his original takes on songs that he penned for Wilson Pickett, Willie Hightower, Candi Staton, Clarence Carter, Jimmy Hughes and more. Most are as good as and frequently are better than the familiar covers and any one could have made him a star of similar stature to his peers, if hed not chosen to put writing above singing the songs in public. Kent's 2009 CD of Georges early and mid-70s recordings for Sounds of Memphis has sold extremely well and was universally admired by fans of quality Southern Soul. It's highly unlikely that this CD will be any less admired, or any less of a seller.
