Conley, Arthur - Soul Directions - Used LP
Original 1968. Vinyl: G+ considerable wear but still a decent copy.
Sleeve: VG. cut out--drill hole through "Atco" logo in bottom left. (see photo)
**** recommended. 1968. While this doesn't quite match his Otis Redding-produced debut (and I've never heard his second album), this is definitely a solid set of southern soul, includes two songs from his Otis sessions, the rest produced by the masterful Tom Dowd (who always knew to keep the heart-punch elements upfront but also knew to fill the backing with interesting elements), including a heartfelt tribute to Otis called "Otis Sleep On." -- winch
