Some Sunday Soul

Willie Hightower is the man who graciously gave way for The Drifters last week
Two tracks from an 18 track eponymous compilation on the Honest Jon label  which if you do not own already you should rectify that forthwith, immediately and at once
The Honest Jon record label is run by the shop of the same name in Portobello Road , Ladbroke Grove in that London in association with Damon Albarn.
They have also released similar must have compilations by Candi Staton and Bettye Swann

Some of the blurbs I have read compare his voice to Sam Cooke but I can hear a bit of Joe Tex in there. Both no bad things as I'm sure you'll agree.
