Bobby Whitlock - One Of A Kind (1975 us, wonderful blend of classic rock southern tastes and blues, 2016 japan SHM remaster)



The Memphis-born/Austin resident with a soulful voice soaked in gospel, R&B, and blues continues to represent the true South, the legacy he began when he was the first white artist to be signed to the Stax label at the tender age of sixteen. 

1975 marked the release of “One of a Kind”, it's a vast improvement very close to his prior best efforts. Bobby plays piano and organ and these are the intruments that subity dominate the album.

His singing is a mix of original blue eyed soul and southern rock a music he helped pioneer.
