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 love music, mostly Ballads be it US, Caribbean and all parts of the World. My second love is South American and Caribbean dance music. I'm not a technical listener but an emotional one. The voices, backing vocals, band, lyrics must touch me for me to like it. So don't expect me to dwell into technical details of songs, if it's on this blog, it's there because it touched me in one way or an other.
