Some beautiful stuff to be had on any Arthur Alexander compilation. Some of you may already be aware of him through The beatles (Anna/a shot of rhythm and blues/Where have you been?) my personal favourite 'Soldiers of love' a slice of melancholic perfection.

There isn't a song of his I don't like (although I must have only heard about thirty, not more). My favourite ones are 'Anna', 'You're the Reason' and 'Without a Song'. And, much as I like the Beatles, I think Arthur's original version of 'Anna' is much, much better than theirs. They had good taste.
