Sam and Dave have today’s almost forgotten track

Sam and Dave were one of those acts that worked together despite the fact they couldn’t stand each other…problem was, in that regard, they kept making incredible hit records so had to take the stage as often as there was a demand…they did, eventually, break up, but only after the hits stopped coming…this track, to my mind, remains one of the great soul ballads of all time, but you’re far more likely to hear Soul Man or Hold On I’m Coming these days…this performance is, however, one of Stax Records/Studios finer moments…

Greg Simpson firmly believes his career in the music industry officially began on March 14, 1965 when a band gave him ten dollars as commission for helping them find a gig. He hasn’t looked back since then and looks forward to celebrating his fiftieth in 2015 with an enormous party paid for by the hundreds of dollars he’s made since then. His career has covered all aspects from radio for many years, and including working for record labels, artists and, since 1992, Canadian Music Week where he programs the radio stream and manages all conference streams and events in real time annually. He also attends half a dozen conferences a year doing research for CMW and is generally accepted as a knowledgeable cat with a few stories to tell. At the root of it all, though, is his undying love for music and musicians.
