Arthur Alexander

FROM 1,000 RECORDINGS TO HEAR BEFORE YOU DIE

The album is The Ultimate Arthur Alexander (Released 1993), but he was a 60′s R&B singer whose biggest hit you may or may not remember (it was instantly recognizable to me): 1962′s “You Better Move On”, a great original and later covered by the Rolling Stones. As the author points out, the recording was the first ever at now legendary Muscle Shoals studios, a distinction in and of itself.

Another original from the same year was later covered by The Beatles, with Lennon singing lead: “Anna (Go To Him)”.
