For someone who likes their soul deep I’m surprised Clay Hammond hasn’t really registered with me before. I have no excuses either because now I come to think of it I have at least a couple of tracks of his on early Ace Kent compilations.
This 1967 45 is a new addition to my collection, the first I have of Clay’s, but somehow I think it will not be the last.
My head has been full of Clay these last few days as this 45 has had quite a few spins. Now it feels full of clay in other ways as a cold has really kicked in in the last 24 hours. As a result I don’t feel like writing much today so I will just post this and then go back to adding to the tissue mountain (Ally and I could have a competition, maybe!).
And here is the more uptempo, and equally great, flip side (A, B who really knows?). This reminds me of something else. Anybody?
