Fame Recordings [Import]
Regarded as the "secret hero" of ’60s R&B, Dan Penn is one of the greatest Southern soul songwriters of the past 50 years! Penn the artist enjoyed unfettered after-hours access to Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama from 1963-1966, an apprenticeship under the guidance of studio owner Rick Hall that was a crucial turning point in his career. These 24 tracks are from those sessions, including Dan’s original interpretations of future soul classics such as Rainbow Road; You Left the Water Running, and It Tears Me Up, as well as lesser-known and rarely covered gems like Come Into My Heart; Strangest Feeling; The Thin Line, and more! The package features in-depth notes based upon fresh interviews with Penn, Hall, Marlin Greene and Spooner Oldham that deal specifically with the Fame era! Ace Records.
