You Are Too Much For The Human Heart – Rare & Unreleased Georgia Soul 1961 to 1976

CD (Item 385086) Soul Tay Shus/Tuff City, 1960s/Mid 70s — Condition: New Copy
Out Of Stock


4.50 11

Raw southern soul from Hermon Hitson – a howler in the tradition of Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, Otis Clay and Bobby Bland! This collection of singles originally cut for Atco, Minit and other smaller labels is bit of a sprawl – from the early 60s on through the mid 70s – which is great, because it gives you a real feel for Hitson's depth! The earlier tracks rock in the Pickett, Bland school of invigorating soul shouters, but as the years progressed Hitson adapted with some occasional ballads and strains of funk – all of it compellingly raw! 21 tracks in all: "You Are Too Much For The Human Heart", "I Got That Will", "Show Me Some Sign", "Bad Girl", "Georgia Grind". "Why Is It Taking So Long", "Where Can I Find My Baby", "Please", "Been So Long", "Sweeter", "A Dream I Had (I Love Her)", "They Kept On Laughin'" and more – including a few unreleased gems!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
