I first heard an Arthur Alexander record thanks to John Peel - it was the original of 'Anna (Go To Him)' which The Beatles covered on Please Please Me.
Yesterday I was playing Peel's (birthday) Party 40 shows whilst roasting potatoes, and this one just leapt out at me - what a song. Recorded in 1961 and a big US soul/R&B hit, it pretty much kickstarted things at the legendary FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
There's a re-recording on the LP of the same name which is all slowed-up and icky strings, but this is the cracking single version.
