Percy Mayfiled on Tangerine

Here's a nice single from 1966 by one of my favorite singers, Percy Mayfield. This was put out on Ray Charles' Tangerine Records and the material that he recorded there at least equaled, if not surpassed in quality, the sides he recorded for Specialty in the fifties. All of the Tangerine recordings were compiled on a terrific CD called "Percy Mayfied his Tangerine and Atlantic sides" which I believe is now out of print. The photo above shows Percy in the studio with Ray. His facial injury from a horrific car wreck a few years earlier is clearly visible. BTW, yes that is Ray Charles playing organ on this track...
