The list of songwriters covered by both The Beatles and Rolling Stones (not to mention Dylan and Otis) is not very long, and right at the top of it comes Arthur Alexander, who furnished the former with “Anna” and the latter with “You Better Move On”.
Both bands strove to emulate the forlorn pathos that marked Alexander’s own versions, recorded at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
After years away from the music business, this comeback album from 1993 mixed Alexander classics such as “Sally Sue Brown” and a heartbreaking “Every Day I Have To Cry” with new material like “If It’s Really Got To Be This Way”, all delivered faultlessly in his trademark poignant baritone.
