Hard Luck Guy
"To this day, I still play all his records with great enjoyment, He remains unique, a white boy who truly sang and played in the spirit of the great black soul artists he venerated. With Eddie it wasn't imitation, it was totally created, with a fire and a fury that was as real as Otis Redding's and Wilson Pickett's"
Great white soul voices? Rod Stewart? Steve Winwood?
Pah! Ladies and gentlemen I give you THE great white soul voice the late great Hard Luck Guy himself
Mr Eddie Hinton.
Listen and weep Rod!
