Arthur Alexander

Here are a couple of gems from one of the founding fathers of country soul, Arthur Alexander: "Miles And Miles From Nowhere" and "Come Along With Me".

Arthur wrote and recorded many songs that were subsequently covered by more commercially successful acts, songs like "Anna" (The Beatles), "You better move on" (The Rolling Stones) and "Set me free" (Charlie Rich and many others).

He was also the first person to record "Burning Love". You will all be familiar with the Elvis version, but have you heard Metal Elvis? Prepare to be astonished.
