Legendary musician Clarence Carter is 85 years old today. He was born in Montgomery, Alabama in 1936. Carter was blind from birth. He immediately gravitated to music, teaching himself guitar by listening to the blues classics of John Lee Hooker, Lightnin' Hopkins, and Jimmy Reed. He majored in music at Alabama State University, learning to transcribe charts and arrangements in Braille.: https://www.allmusic.com/artist/clarence-carter-mn0000148477/biography
Damn I have loved this song since it was released, when I listened to am radio all day long. The last time I did karaoke I sang this song. It was not a good fit, LOLOL
But I love it when KEXP plays it (rather rarely, it seems to me :)).
Cheers for a great choice,
