Arthur Alexander's Self-Titled Album Coming From Omnivore Recordings In Expanded Edition; Notes By Barry Hanson

Arthur Alexander's Self-Titled Album Coming From Omnivore Recordings In Expanded Edition; Notes By Barry Hanson


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) When the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Humble Pie, Dusty Springfield, George Jones & Johnny Paycheck, Bob Dylan, the Bee Gees and countless other artists cover your songs, you must be on to something.
Arthur Alexander was a songwriter and song stylist whose first records in the early 1960s — such as "Anna (Go to Him)" and "You Better Move On" — were some of the earliest hits recorded at Rick Hall's Fame Studios and to feature the famed Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section. After a short break at the end of the decade, Alexander released the second of only three albums that he made in his lifetime — a self-titled "comeback" album in 1972.
On July 28, 2017, Omnivore Recordings will reissue Arthur Alexander, expanded with six bonus tracks — two previously unissued.
With new liner notes by Barry Hansen (better known to most as Dr. Demento), the package also features the piece he wrote for the album's original issue. Arthur Alexander's 12 tracks were produced by Muscle Shoals bassist Tommy Gogbill, and include a version of "Burning Love" — covered by Elvis Presley shortly after the album's release. Alexander's two Warner Bros. follow-up singles are also here, as well as a pair of tracks from the original sessions, unearthed and unheard until now.
As Hansen wrote in the original notes, "Arthur is especially proud of the variety and versatility of his work on this album. All of it is strong medicine, and should be a fine antidote for a lot of bad scenes."
He adds in the current notes, "[The Omnivore volume] honors the soulful wonderment that Arthur brought forth from his difficult time on earth."
Arthur Alexander, inducted into the Alabama Music Hall of Fame, is a music legend. Arthur Alexander is a legendary recording.
