Album: James Govan, Wanted - The Fame Recordings (Kent)
Saturday 10 August 2013
The one time I visited Beale Street in Memphis I walked into the Rum Boogie Cafe and this guy was singing lead, looking a little battered but sounding great.
This is his story: a collection of singles and unreleased tracks by the man who Fame Studios' Rick Hall was tipping as the next Otis Redding. It never quite happened, and you can sort of see why, despite a gritty voice and some good songs, including a fair go at the Beatles' "Something".
