Dallas Frazier - Especially For You (Capitol7528)'66

Country & Western got SOUL
Back home, I was 12 years old, this was a huge hit. For years it was played on late radio shows almost daily. I spend hours in bed with my transistor radio listening to great songs like this one. Dallas is not only a great singer but also a tremendous songwriter.
Many country songs where also sung by great soul artist, many of them even had a whole album with original country songs.

I don't hear any country in this song, do you.

Man, you are surely broadly orientated in music. Great deep song. Thanks for showing me the way.
