Garnet Mimms was a soul singer of distinction, best known for the original version of “Cry Baby” that Janis Joplin covered. This is my fave of his. The singing is great beginning to end but it’s not even the best thing about it, which is the beat. It rides and it’s funky at the same time, with a big assist from the unknown-to-me rhythm guitar player. He cuts The Drifters by a mile.
Not my area of musical expertise, but full credit for the haircut.
Far ahead of his time.
A Ben E King song from the Brill Building with Lieber and Stoller co-writing and producing can’t miss no matter who performs. This is a great song, and great treatment i did not know.
